Are there any universal fit cables that will fit Campy shifters? I've tried the cables I've got laying around and both the brake end and the shifter end are just a touch too big to fit. Is this just the cable I happened to try are do I really need Campy specific cables? None of my local shops stock them since nothing they sell has Campy so they are a special order.

Take any cable end and shave it down a little with emery cloth or sandpaper. No problems.

You can also just file the ends or regular cables down a little...that is what I do most of the time. Works just fine.
