I'm to build a new commuter next week after a frame swap with the Hubmeister, and I plan on using some Veloce Ergos I have sitting around. However I don't fancy spending the premium on Campag cables...are Shimano cable usable with ergos?

    Yep.

    EDIT: Outers are, inners are with a bit of filing. Best to just buy Campag inners though.

    I thought the nipples were a tad different, is that what you mean w.a.i.h.?

    Yeah, that's what needs to be filed. The Campag nipples are a tiny bit narrower than the Shimano ones.

    Turns out Parker's have the Campag inner cables for £2.25 which is reasonable, so I'll just order a couple of them,

    Worse, I'm using campag housing on one or two of my shimano equipped bikes! :shock:

    I presume brake cables are brake cables and I can just use any?
