    Mudlovers? Little bit over but pretty good IMHO…

    Can’t remember how much they were but I have some jagwire ripcord on my bike for about three years and still shifting smoothly can’t rate them highly enough, ridden all year round.

    Second Mudlovers – full length inner tube to keep it sealed.

    I bought Selcof brake cables (compressionless, same idea as Jagwire brake cables) and I’m pretty happy with them. 1/2 the price of Jagwire and similar performance. Good quality cables.

    I got mine from On One, ordered at 12, were with me at 10am next day.

    I know that I’m referencing brake cable rather than gear but quality is comparative to Jagwire on a like for like basis.

    its for a cyclocross bike that will be raced.

    something like the jagwire ripcord (but a little cheaper

    I have seen this which looks similar? http://www.xcracer.com/shop/viewproduct.php?productid=94

    I’ve just ordered some Mudlovers from Merlin this morning. Better to run fully sealed in the usual year-round filth in our part of the world

    I’ve bought the jagwire racer kits before but being a serial bike fettler, £26 a time is quite an expensive extra when changing bars.

    Anyone recommend anything cheaper for a full set? (brakes and gears)

    Or should I just get down my LBS and buy some off a roll like I used to do as a kid?

    Mtbtomo – buy Shimano sp-41 in 10m rolls and use any cheap stainless inners?

    Where’s the best place to get a roll then?

    I’d like to get a roll of brake cable too.

    Get some middleburn oilers, cheap, very effective and re-usable. Truly the most unassuming piece of kit you can buy, they just work.
