Gore Ride On Cables
Great cables, not too hard to fit, if you follow the instrucions closely. I’ve used them for years, you can ride through any mud and water and know the gears will work. I’ve never worn any out, sometimes you need new ones if you fit a new mech, or if a stone cuts tehm againt the down tube. Don’t bother using them on front mech though, it’s not worth it, they nver go wrong through stick cables.Posted 7 years ago
Avoid Avid Flakjackets, these are only semi sealed (read ‘not sealed at all’), let water in, but it can’t get out, the cable then corrodes.nicko74Member
Another vote in the yes camp here – when I built up my Soda a couple of years ago I decided RideOns were the way to go. Since then, I’ve not had any issues whatsoever – as a solution it’s one of the best out there, particularly if you’re a fit and forget type rider.
Admittedly, I don’t ride through peak district mud, but even in South Wales’ worst weather and grime I’ve had no issues. Definitely worth a look IMOPosted 7 years agocoatesyMember
Be aware that there are different Gore cable sets too, we ordered a “Professional” kit for a customer(the only one available from the importer at the time),turned out to be a similar system to Flak-Jackets, but with only enough ferrules to kit out a road bike(as long as it doesn’t have mid-cable adjusters).Posted 7 years ago
Used to be a big fan of Gore cables too, but the last set I had went back to Wiggle for a refund, used them singly on the rear and both had virtually seized within the space of about 3 months,now gone to full length Shimano SP41 outers(the pre-greased stuff)which has been trouble free for about 8 months and counting.
