Want to replace your front and back brake cables!

PostedApril 16, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: tools required to cut
This item was recommended by the shop as I was replacing both sets of brake cables, it actually worked out cheaper than buying the preset sized cables. It is a great product, comes complete with cable end ferrules to tidy up the outer and inner cables. The length is great (more than enough to do re-cable even the tallest of road or hybrid bikes). The only down side I can put across is that you will need the tools to be able to cut both inner and outer cable to the correct length

An ideal buy

PostedMarch 12, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great, generous lengths
Some of the simplest ideas are usually the best. Sell a brake cable set, with everything you need to replace your brake cables (i.e. cables, outer housing, ferrules) which works out considerably cheaper than buying each piece individually.
Also a nice idea to have both inner cables with alternate style at each end - just cut off the one you don't need. Miles of cable and housing, I even have some housing left.
