    upgrading cables

    does upgrading shifter and brake cables make a big difference and is it worth the money to do so.

    upgrading is not worth the money, but i would say that replacing the cables frequently, making sure the housing is clean, and using teflon lube on the cables and housing is definitely worthwhile.
