Gear Cables – What do you use??
SP41 outers, cheap inners. Forget branded, Teflon coated, pre stretched and various other fancy inner treatments. Makes sod all difference with a good quality lubed outer (that SP41 is).
Full outers ideally, if off road (I qualify that as I know there are tonnes of people here only in it for roadie chat for some bizarre reason on a forum called *Singletrack* World but anyway 😉 ).
Good quality hard ferrules. Bendy rubbery ones are fine but they split easily and the outer frays.Posted 4 years agoJoeGSubscriber
Shimano SP41 housing and cables with sealed end caps and Jagwire housing liner between them. All available at my LBS. I discard the rubber part of the Shimano caps as the cable is covered by the Jagwire liner.
Edit – and the rubber wormy thing from Gore cables at the derailleur end!Posted 4 years agoRock WallabyMember
The Transfil Flying Snake are the business as I have been running the same set of gear cables now for four years without any issues. They are a three part system the wire, then an sleave that goes completely over the wire and then the outer. I have converted a number of mates to these cables and all are happy with them.Posted 4 years ago
