    Comments about Jagwire Basics Brake Cable:

    Cut end frays making threading thry housing difficult. packaging is now different. photo on web not clear enough to show that there is no housing-this mfg sells both kinds w, w/o.
    Does not come with end caps. Nice and long with both styles of end anchors.
    But-it fit and the bike works again. Good for an on-ride spare.

          I like to have a few cables on hand for inevitable fixes that come up on my several bikes and those of my family. These do the job and are good for both road and mountain bikes.

            I needed a replacement rear cable and this fit the bill. The old cable was teflon coated. A coated cable wasn't available, so I went with this cable. It does the job.

            Simple, affordable galvanized cable when you're fixing up a bike on the cheap. Come off a few pennies and buy the stainless stuff for your bike, it will last longer. Please note that while I would not recommend this to a friend, I do think it's a good product that fits a legitimate need and I'd buy it again, so long as it's for a bike I don't care that much about.

            Comments about Jagwire Basics Brake Cable:

            Not much to say, it's a stainless steel inner brake cable with fittings for both mountain or road bikes. Downside to double ending the cable is that you have to cut to install it, and the raw end may fray as you feed it through the housing. Also, no end crimp is included. Not a huge deal but again, it is basic.
