Do you have Canti/V-brakes or discs? Are you running straight/riser bars or something with a pull-back like Mary, H, or cruiser bars?
It seems to me that I did get away with a regular shifter cable when setting up my Xtracycle when I did that a couple years ago but the disc brake required a longer cable. Of course I had to get all new longer cables when I switched to a Mary bar later.
Since I usually collect parts and tackle projects a night when the shops are closed, I don't mind spending an extra buck or two so I'm sure I can get the project done when I start.
