Gear Cables

Gear cables are used to control gear shifting on bikes with geared drivetrains and may require replacement if the inner cables are stretched, snapped or frayed or the outers are kinked or bent in a way that impedes shifting.Generally the inner cables are thinner than brake cables (1.2mm as opposed to 1.6mm) but may also be made of stainless steel to combat corrosion with an optional coating to help reduce friction.
