Sealed cables – Flying snakes etch
Well I’ll stick my head above the parapet and say that I’m happy with flying snakes mudlovers. Been on for 8 months of grim scottish weather and still super smooth, never touched them.Posted 9 years ago
Ran Gore before, one set lasted 7 years, yes 7 years, even transplanted from one bike to another.
I’ll play devils advocate here. The reason cable runs have stops on the frame is that the cables need to be held in tension, and the very best way of doing that is to secure them against the frame. Full length outers may seem like a plan, but eventually dirt will get in, and then your shifting will be worse. it’ll wear out your mechs and shifters quicker, and you’ll get through more outer making your shifts less crisp. Even an XTR complete cable kit (outers inners, and so on) is only £15.00. Change it all once a year. Jobs a good un.
If full length runs were such a good idea, bikes would come like that, no?Posted 8 years agocrankriderMember
