- any most bargainous gear cables to suggest?
Flying snake seem good. Ive fitted them to 3 of my bikes and they seem to last a long time. Not had to change one yet. You get outer, inner sheath and cable. With a continous cable set up there is very little opportunity for crap to get in. I recommend them. But they aint the cheapest.Posted 6 years agoBaznavMember

mtb-direct.co.uk for outer by the meter, they do shimano SP41 in different colours other than XTR grey, and cheep inners replaced regulalry seem the most foolproof solution asside from expensive sealed options.
KCNC inner looks cool, not sure how much better than normal XTR it is though. Seem’s more draggy but longer lasting as the coating rubs off and presumably then lines the outer without the need for large ammounts of lube. I’d not run it in full length outers though as with the coating it’s a bit thicker than normal hence the drag.Posted 6 years agoPeterPoddyMember

It’s slightly cheaper for 10m here, and they do colours tooPosted 6 years ago
These are the buisness, look good, work good, cheap. (I use an oiler in full length lines, but thats a bit overkill)Posted 6 years ago
I went for Parker International in the end. Seemed good price and choice etc. Went for the “non-priority” free postage option. Ordered 12 days ago and still not here!
Took them 6 days to actually despatch (apparently “Premium” service, i.e. paid postage gets prioritised…). 6 more days later and still no sign. Presumably “Free” = sub-second class. 😡
Annoying… Won’t be using them again, then.Posted 6 years ago
