Replacing a gear cable in a road bike's dual control lever can seem like a daunting challenge. Handlebar tape must be removed, the lever hood unrolled, and the routing path of the existing cable committed to memory. Like most procedures, however, it's easy when you know how, and easier still when you know someone who knows how and can show you.

Enjoy this step-by-step guide to fitting a gear cable and check out other edits in the same series, including demonstrations of wrapping handlebar tape and fitting tubeless tyres.
