Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.
