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 bikes worth, includes:
- two 700mm lengths 5mm diameter housing
- one 300mm length 5mm diameter housing
- one 2100mm length stretched stainless steel slick pre-stretched cable
- one 1500mm length stretched stainless steel slick pre-stretched cable
- 6 ferrules
- 2 tips
- 4 padded sleeves

I too should have read and measured more carefully. The pre-cut derailleur cables are too short for my 59cm Bridgestone XO-1 with bar end shifters and mustache bars. The cables are excellent quality and look very nice. They will be used on a different bike build.
I’m enjoying the housing and cables however I didn’t calculate the housing lengths carefully enough. They are listed but I ignored the details and just assumed I’d be fine. I’m running a 1x setup on a 59cm frame and have no choice but to run full housing to the rear derailleur, I had to use all three lengths of housing with a couple double ended ferrules to join them up and it’s still a bit shorter than I’d prefer. It’s no one’s fault but my own so unless you’re using down tube shifters, read the specifications carefully and check them against your current setup.
Happy with good quality to full-fill your dream bicycle
