They are easy to replace if you know what you're doing.

There is quite a few guides on google try that. Cant say how hard it is as i don't know how capable you are but be prepared to completly re adjust your gears for the new cable.

But saying that, re adjusting the gears isn't that hard either. Turn a couple of screws and you'll be sorted.

It's easy if you know what you are doing.
Otherwise, you wont know till you try yourself.
£20's a bit expensive imo since its likely just a 10-15min job for most mechanics.

I just started going back out on my own Hardrock, since it got all sunny, and its a lovely bike.
Was the Hydraulic Disc one for £330, but i'm thinking of ditching the cheap gears as my years of riding an expensive bike has ruined me and i cant get used to the lower amount of gears and the ratio's.

Have a look at http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/fix/

A Merkin site, but seem to know their stuff.

I think the biggest issue is adjusting the gears to change correclty afterwards. Bit of a Black Art.

Also, make sure you put a nipple on the end of the cable. Keeps the end tidy & stops it stabbing you afterwards.

Good Luck :thumbsup:
