    Cable head used with Soma urban cross lever

    Hey all, I'm looking to get a soma urban cross lever and I'm worried my cable head won't fit into my new lever. Does the Soma urban lever use a mushroom-headed cable or barrel-headed? Thanks!

    Just get a new cable for a few dollars.
    But fyi, cross top levers use the "mushroom"/road ends.

    A normal road cable will do the trick. I've even used a derailleur cable without incident.

    the only one that does not is the paul e-lever. that uses mountain ends (the barrel looking one)
