      My bike has Sram grip shifters and I hate them, I purchased a set of Sram X.3 trigger shifters and a Sram X3 rear derailleur because I wanted to upgrade some parts on my bike.

      My question is, will I have to change out the cables since they are the same brand going to the same place, or should I switch out the cables too? I have only taken my bike out to the trails about six times and the cables are essentially new.

      i took this bike back and got a 29r instead, will still use the sram trigger shifters when they get here though.

      Derailleur cables are the same for all SRAM and all Shimano – road, mountain, hybrid, you name it. So if the cables are frayed, and are long enough to reuse, don’t bother buying new ones!
