Does anyone know if these are only for v-brakes, or could they be used for a cable disk setup such as Avid BB7?

Can get them for under £20, assuming they'll work with the BB7's, are they the best option, or would some Goodridge outer be best with some standard shimano inners?

    they will not be long enough.

    OK, so I take it you mean the rear as it has to go another 12" or so to the disk caliper instead of the v-brake?

    In which case what would be my best option for inner cable & outer?

    cheers
