    Will this cable housing work?

    So I found this cable housing, I am wondering if it is compatable with avid BB7 brakes.

    And also, is this cable compatable with the BB7s as well?

    Instead of all the dumb questions here... why don't you ask the LBS? Or did they already boot you out?

    Just go to the shop. It's not like you know how to install and adjust everything anyways.

    I think you are stalking me down and being the first to post in all my topics. I am not going to go to the bike store and ask them if a cable i found online will fit, just want to know if it will work so i can order it and install it.

    Also, stop cutting me down. there is no reasen to keep posting negative things against me. I just want to ride my bike, not argue on the internet with someone. All I need to know is if that cable works.

    He is actually being polite.

    Yes that is brake housing & it is 8.5 feet of it.

    You can buy what you need at the LBS possibly for less.

    Uh no. I regularly post on this board and the urban board. And there's a 2 hour gap between when you posted and when I posted.

    STFU.

    Maybe you didn't understand... BUY IT FROM YOUR BIKE SHOP AND HAVE THEM INSTALL IT.

    I'm waiting for the thread. "How do I make this brake cable work for my hydro gyro on my p2 chase downhill"

    Take it to the bike shop
    Tell them you want to run the front brake throught the head tube, you will have to buy the new starnut, headcap and bolt on FSA for seven bucks, have them leinthen your durailer cable and houling also because its not long enough either. I looked at how much it woould cost to buy, and SHIP it and the bike shop is much cheeper and can do a better job than we can.

    You can't even do barspins...

    On top of that... you've told us like 50 times that you're getting a gyro.

    Will a gyro even WORK on my bike with the stem so close to the frame. it seems like It would open up a big can of worms. Seems liike a longer cable is the way to go and a lot cheaper as well. Although If I CAN put a gyro on for under 40 bucks let me know.

    How should I know? Nobody has ever even seen your bike.

    TAKE IT TO THE SHOP.

    40 bucks? A gyro costs like 20...
