Question brake cable housing + shifter cables?

mga sirs, yun po bang cable housing na ginagamit sa brakes pwede din po sa shifters? medyo mas mataba yung brake cable, so mas malaki din yung butas nung housing..tolerable po ba yung effect nung medyo maluwag (smaller cable sa loob ng medyo malaking housing) sa shifting?

TIA!

brake cable housing compresses. derailleur housing is compressionless (the difference is the housing for brakes are wound while the der cable housing is strands). you will get crappy shifting if you use brake cable housing for your derailleurs as the brake housing is designed to compress which completely destroys your indexing adjustment by introducing a bit of flex into the system.

The size of the cables is different for brake and shifter. Use appropriate cable housing for a better perfomance... :thumbsup:
