The answer is no, the bicycle brake cable and the bicycle shift cable have different thicknesses. The biggest difference between the bicycle brake cable and the bicycle shift cable is the structure and inner diameter. The inner diameter of the shift cable is smaller than the inner diameter of the brake cable. The inner wire of the brake cable is thick, and the outer tube is structured like a spring, which is wound up. The whole is thicker than the shift cable. The shift cable is different from it. The inner cable is thinner than the brake cable. The structure of the outer tube is supported by steel wires instead of being wound.
As far as the line tube is concerned, as long as it is a first-line brand, it is fine. Note that the shift cable is different from the brake line. Moreover, the brake cable is thicker than the shift cable and the wire control cable, so the inner diameter of the brake cable tube is also larger than the inner diameter of the transmission wire tube and the wire control cable. The shift cable and the remote control cable can be installed in the brake cable tube. However, the brake cable cannot be installed on the shift line tube or the brake line tube. In order to better exert the performance of braking, shifting, and wire control during installation, avoid mistakes during installation.
In addition, the difference between the brake cable and the shifting cable, in addition to the difference in thickness due to different models, the most important thing is that the joints are different, and the brake cable cannot be installed on the shifting handlebar. Because the shift line tube should be thinner and the brake line tube should be thicker, it is best to match it when loading the car, otherwise it will affect the speed change. In addition, when buying bicycle brake cables, because there is no standard for the length of bicycle brake cables, the new cables purchased are purchased at the most conservative length because the brake cables are universal, which is conducive to the replacement of more models of bicycle brake cables. . When installing, the cable must be installed in accordance with the direction, do not wind, do not be too long, do not bear to cut.
