- Bulk buy inner/outer gear cable
I got a 30m reel of Clarks outer cable from Chain Reaction i think it was, for just over a tenner on sale. That should see me through a few bikes!
Couldn’t find much in the way of bulk buying for inners, some places on eBay sell job lots of cable but you had to buy hundreds and it just didn’t seem worth it for the saving.Posted 1 year ago
Here you go 10 here for £3.65
plenty of grease before fitting and good to go.

I buy the Jagwire outer by the 10m… (search ebay but put in 10m)
Inners I’ve been buying the fairly cheap teflon coated ones… I usually but 5-10 at once…
The outer goes way further…. as you just cut the length you need…
anyway £3 and you get a nice new feel… especially used on kids bike as stiff cables are much worse for small hands but at that cost it’s nice to just swap it over when you’re doing other maintenance.Posted 1 year ago

I bought a huge roll of outer and a 100 gear inners both of eBay. It was expensive, but its kept me in smooth shifting bikes for 7 years now 🙂
It’s not like it goes off or standards in gear cable change….
Depends how much you value being able to change stuff – right now- when it needs doing.Posted 1 year ago
