plenty of cable at a good price.
on 29 September 2015
I am no expert but was replacing gear and brake cable. I have a mountain bike and just tend to do general cycling and some light off road. I replaced the gear and brake cables on my bike and used this cable for the brakes. I chose it because of good feedback and it was a good price.
I had no problems installing at all. The metal fitting at the end of the outer casing didnt fit/ was of no use for my bike but its not a problem, its just there as i guess some bikes maybe use that fitting. Just slide off the outer case and remove it if its not needed.
There is a generous amount of wire and casing and i had plenty left over when i had finished the job. I believe this wire isn't coated though so i just used some loose oil in the tubing and grease on the cable to help protect it and keep it moving smoothly over time. I don't have much to compare it to but the need to lubricate it was the only reason i have given 4 stars but at the price i can't complain at all. I would buy again.
I would recommend having some wire snips as the casing has a metal interior and you do need something decent for a neat cut.
