This wound cable housing may look like the housing you saw on vintage bikes, but it's made from modern stainless steel. That means it is rust resistant and super rugged. As with vintage housing, it does not have a plastic outer coating.
The kit includes 4 padded sleeves that can be placed around the housing to prevent scratching your bike's lovely paint. The housing is very flexible, so it's perfect for quick bends without introducing friction. Standard 5mm diameter. Liner is separate from the wound housing, so you can cut it to length.
One bike's worth, includes:
- one 1550mm length housing
- one 800mm length housing
- one 2000mm stainless steel slick pre-stretched cable (with one road and one MTB end; cut off the end you don't need)
- one 1000mm stainless steel slick pre-stretched cable (with one road and one MTB end; cut off the end you don't need)
- 6 ferrules
- 2 tips
- 4 padded sleeves

The best... hands down, V.O. are everything I ever wanted from a bike shop. Retro'd for the modern age.... Yes. More V.O. stuff always.
Retro-Style Stainless Wound Cable Kit, Brake
These are great, but I did not receive the little stepdown pieces.
I am absolutely obsessed with this housing. I've used it for years - and have not needed to replace a set yet through 6+ years of gnarly winter commuting in Chicago. I put it on all of my bikes now. It looks good with everything, the picture doesn't do it justice. There is a uniquely satisfying and graceful way that it hangs from the cockpit. It is far more flexible and thus smoother functioning and less likely to crimp and break than your standard plastic housing.
I love it and couldn't recommend it more.
These cables look great and work flawlessly. Great job!
