Sorry but its my first Campagnolo build for about 15 years - whats the best option for good quality white cables for a Campagnolo install? I dont particulatly like the longevity of Nokon & other pieced systems.
If I run, say Jagwire Road elite and use the existing Campagnolo Cable inners, will that work well?
Many thanks

What's wrong with the original Campagnolo cables? They are available in white.

Ribble: black: $30, white: $32, red: $35 (or something like that) -- you just have to look around.

BTW: it seems Campagnolo changed the cable/housing set in 2016(?) a bit, the Ribble stuff is the "old" version (AFAICT).

Ive only found it at bike24 for 42 Euros (plus 10 Euros shipping!) whereas JAgwire is 30..
Jagwire say they arent compatible with Campagnolo but Im assuming thats just because of the inner cable nipples. I GUESS all cables for shift have pretty much the same inner-cable diameter, and all for Brake likewise??
