I put these on and braking performance suffered. I attempted a slight bend and moved the cable inner back and forth and noticed a large amount of friction. I then replaced it with Jagwire cables with the same bend and the smoothness was like night and day.
I was surprised how thick the housing was. Really nice to work with (installation) and is perfect with some of the complex routings I have. The cables love it too - much more responsive shifting and braking action. Only down side is that now I have to order another set for my other bike so it too will look as good (and work as well)!
Lovely and functional. The perfect compliment to the chromed lugs and polished aluminum components of my project bike.
Very nice looking and functional. They match the chrome on my bike well
Nice quality and no issue. Packing was complete and included all the small parts.
