Bike Radar Review ]here

Used for

* Ride on non-paved surfaces
* Off-road riding
* Exposed to mud, dirt, salt air or weather

What we like...

* Fibre optic technology
* 100% corrosion resistant
* 25% lighter
* long life maintenance-free
* less shifting effort
* stainless inner wire
* PTFE liner reduces friction

Simply the best cables out there and they last for years. Super-tough, these all-weather extremely durable cables will not let you down and leave you stranded.

Good quality gear cables will have a dramatic effect on the feel and function of your drivetrain. Fully sealed systems are particularly good for MTBs used off-road as they prevent the ingress of water

I'm sure it won't be long before someone comes on complaining that £32 for some cables is expensive when they got a whole bike for £40 from Asda at the weekend.

I've never suffered from cable issues myself (on a decent hard tail) but if you do it would mean, snatchy brakes and unreliable shifting. If this solves it then £32 is a bargain.

I agree, which is why I put the target audience in the posting.

Unfortunately I am (on my 2004 Trek 6700 ) and am now fed up with wasting time cleaning / trying to fix it so I have just picked this cableset up after lots of reading around.

This product has quite a reputation to live up to - it was discontinue but has been brought back into production due to popular demand !

Here are ]109 reviews to get your teeth into, if you are that way inclined.

Muck from rides like this one (from Mountain Mayhem) are likely to be the cause though:

I think you need some mudguards more urgently than gear cables
