Type: Cable and Housing Set
I had built a fixxy (single speed) a number of years ago and the brake cables in this moist environment had seen much better days so I needed to do something about it. I chose the Shimano cables because They were stainless steel and from rebuilds that I have done I knew the cable housing was of high quality. I loved that the cables were double ended and could have been used on both types of brake calipers that I was considering. The only issue I had was cutting the cable housing which I ended up doing with electrical wire cutters so that I would not damage the ends and after the cut taking a small piece of wire to clean out any plastic residue from the ends worked great. All in all a wonderful product at a good price.
What more can I say? These are brake cables. They work. Good quality. All the goodies you need in one package. Cheaper than if you went into a bike shop and they cut you pieces of cable and housing.
Didn't know you needed to change brake cables. THought you just let some silicon spray slide down into the cable housing. Had a training buddy test ride my bike after new wheels were installed. Let me know my brake cables needed replacement. I usually go to a mechanic to do all my bike maintenance. He said I could do it myself. I bought these and the installation was VERY easy. And now, so is my braking. Looking at doing this to my other bikes soon since it was so easy and I felt such a great improvement.
