Great value for money

Exceeded my expectation. Silky smooth shift

Dear Simon

Thank you for purchasing and reviewing our Universal Derailleur Cable.
Just a hack to make it even much more smoother, is to apply a few drop of Chain Wax (Not Wet or Dry Lube) onto the cable before installing them into the cable housing.

Functional quality cable

Nothing more to say. Works well for budget bikes. The Btwin premium brake/derailleur set is highly recommended for higher performance bikes

Thee cables appear to be all I ask of them, smooth in operation and a good length. Many "top" brands are too short!

Metal plug bit far too big

Tried to use this with a deore shifter but the metal ball bit on the end of the cable that holds it in the shifter is far to big. Would've thought a 'universal' gear cable would be made to work with a popular shimano shifter :/

I'm sorry to read that this cable did not fit in your shifter. This is indeed an universal item and I can't for the life of me figure out why it did not fit. Only two reasons spring to mind. Either the seating hole in the shifter had a contaminate or was damaged (unlikely) or that for some reason, the cable end has a defect (extremely rare) but the most probable culprit in this instance.
I can only apologise for this and the time you've wasted. Please feel free to return it and swap it for a new one.

Does the job

Purchased as a direct replacement for the cable on my BTwin Triban 500 se that had worn, cheap in price, good in quality, does job its meant to, no matter how fancy and expensive a cable you can buy elsewhere at the end of the day its just a cable and still an pain in the bum to fit! Fast delivery! Thanks.

Include cable end cap

For personal cycle maintenance nobody wants to keep extra spares/components. For inner cables and outer plastic housing end camp and ferrule should be included as kit item. Also for Indian market the price is high.

Great product and great price

Good quality cable, easy to fit, nice price too, changed my old gear cable for this one as old one was damaged, works a treat

Great basic cable

Great item but for some reason when i cut it the cable frayed massively which was a pain when crimping an end on, might be something I did wrong, the cable is nice and thick, you'll need to buy the cable ends seperately, had to buy a pack of them. Would have been nice to get 1 crimp end in the pack as thats all you would need

I've used this item many times now.....I know other people go on about cable quality etc etc, but I've built several of my own bikes now and services several others replacing cables etc and have used this item. Cheap and simple to work with, yes you might have to make minor adjustments shortly after fitting due to 'cable stretch' but that happens with most cables......I always have a few sets of them in the tool box for when needed. At this price what's not to like

Good quality item

Would be better if included a 'tip' to fit after cutting to size
