    new cables for x.9?

    Hey all i have x7 shifters currently and want to upgrade to x9. Should i get x9 with cables as well, or can i re-use my x7 cables? Reason being on ebay there are some pretty good deals of new x9s with no cables, and then there x9s that are like 20 bucks more but come with the cables.

    You can reuse your cable but if I were you I'd buy the shifters without cable and then get some XTR cables from the lbs for about 5 bucks. That way you get nice new cables and save money.

    If you keep your old cables you will have to trim the ends cleanly so that you can route them through the shifter holes and back through the housing. Getting a cable through the X.9 rear der. shifter is a bit of a pain and if you have a frayed cable can be downright impossible.

    ah that sounds like a good plan. Went ahead and bought them without the cables for a pretty sweet price. Can't wait to get these puppies installed!
