Colored Derailleur Cable Kits
One bike's worth, includes:
- two 700mm lengths lined SIS-compatible 5mm diameter housing
- one 300mm length lined SIS-compatible 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 cable crimps
I've rebuilt/overhauled five bikes in the last three years and would but any other cables: these are a pleasure to work with.
These yellow cables worked great for the restoration of my 1988 Panasonic MC-7500 mtb. A bit narrow for vintage shifters, but function 100% and color-matched the original brake cables.
love color, price, quality, and very fast shipping
Modified my Peugeot PH8, using Velo Orange orange brake and derailleur cable housing and cables and a V.O. threadless stem...among other upgrades! The Orange really pops with the decals on the silver frame -- Thanks, Velo Orange!
These cables are on a Bertin C 37 restoration using friction shifting with Simplex LJ 5500 rear and Super LJ front derailleurs. The drawn stainless inner wires are extremely slick and move freely in the lined outer cable sheath. Shifts with Retrofriction levers are effortless and without binding. The cable outers have enough flex to comfortably follow the under bottom bracket cable routing and make a elegant curve at the rear cable stop to derailleur arc. Highly effective at a good price with little to no stretch after fitting.
