Its a cable!

PostedJune 15, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Not too much to say. Did the job. Shimano do what they do well.
No end cap with it though. You know where you cut the cable, it didn't have a squeeze on ferrule.
Otherwise OK.

value

PostedDecember 27, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Bought two. One to use and a spare. Thought from picture and having bought a brake cable that the user would cut off the obsolete end. There is only one end and it is different on the two cables I bought. works ok but could as well tie a knot?

Promising!

PostedFebruary 27, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, easy to fit
Cons: Expensive
After a number of gear cables which frayed badly after a year's use (and the end of which had to be filed down to fit the hole in my gear lever), I decided to give this a try. It fits without filing, and the promised higher quality might mean that it lasts longer - here's hoping!

Not sure it's quite universal

PostedSeptember 20, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: didn't fit properly
Purchased one of these to replace the broken rear 105 cable.
Big mistake.
The cable nodule is slightly smaller than the Shimano 105 cable's one (1-2 mm by sight)
Fitting was fine, but as I start to adjust the gears, suddenly there is a clunk and no further movement, the cable end has slipped into the Brifters mechanism.
30 minutes to fish out of the brifter.
1 Shimano cable and 10 minutes later I am back on the road with working gears.

Cable ends.
Posted April 27, 2011
Hi Kiwi.
The picture shows two bevel ends because Shimano and Campagnolo use different shaped cable ends. One cable is supplied with both ends and the idea is that you trim off the end you don't need, depending on which system you use, during the installation of the cable.
