Worth it IMO, you get a decent amount of kit for the money, they last well, and you can run any old inner in the SP41 outer with the sealing ferrule things (the Shimano inners are a bit pricey IMO so I use £1.50 Clarks stainless)
for my own bikes? always Shimano SP-41 outer and any quality inner gear cables, cut and fitted correctly
for my customer’s bikes? its currently Clarkes or CBB outer, because the bigger chain stores have realised how much money they can save by not providing their workshops with quality cabling for customers
its not unknown to cause ongoing havoc with 10 speed and especially 11 speed transmission 🙁
I have just bought a Goodridge set to match my braided hoses.
Similar price to XTR and comes with all above mentioned fittings plus the ability to use a full length inner liner even when not using a full length outer cable. Only trouble is the liner is bright blue which isnt going to match my white and orange Clockwork 29er.
