It depends.. Shifter cables are standard and the same one would work for both LX and XT shifters. If the old cable is full of grime etc, it is a good idea to run new cables - it will give you a smooth easy shift.

I am sure if you check www.shimano.com you will find the manual for your model of shifter. Replacing cables is pretty easy.

The front derailer on my sram red compact just wont change quick!


Which brand of shifters are you using? A SRAM derailleur won't work with Shimano shifters and vice-versa.

So - first; if you are using SRAM shifters with the Red derailleur - then changing to Shimano will not solve your issue but only make it worse.

If however you have Shimano shifters - then this is a good solution.
The Red derailleur should not shift that poorly with SRAM shifters. It is not the best - but it's not bad. If I had the bike in a repair stand I would be looking carefully at the following after affirming that the shifting system was indeed all SRAM:


  • Derailleur cage height relative to the large chanring - should be a maximum of 2 mm
  • Derailleur cage should be aligned as close to parallel to the rings as possible
  • Derailleur upper and lower limit screws should be adjusted within spec and in order to allow the derailleur to travel the correct amount for ideal shifting
  • Derailleur cable tension should be correct.


Hope this helps... Let me know if you need more.

Changing a cable on a sram twist shifter


You should be able to push the cable back on its self, as long as the shifter is set in the relaxed position. Then it will be a case of threading the new cable through the shifter housing.

Shimano Deore LX right hand rear shifter


HERE is Shimano's exploded-view diagram of the shifters, but it really only gives you a ballpark idea of the assembly. You will have to piece the rest together from memory, i suppose. Sorry, i could not find more information for you.

Hope this helps a little,

Install Shimano revoshift. bike came with shift cable not attached. how do I attach it? thanks, barry lentz


Front or rear? Is the cable not in the shifter?
If the cable is not in the shifter, there will be a screw in the shifter (made of plastic, usually black) facing outward. You open this and shift the shifter into the highest gear, then slip the cable through and out the side that accepts the cable sleeve. Then you run it through the sleeve and to its appropriate derailleur (left hand=front, right hand=rear).
