    My Mistake!
    I originally installed the rear derailleur cable first which I though was too short. I then moved to install the rear Brake cable (also a Jagwire) and guess what? I discovered that the cables aren't the same length. One is shorter than the other.

    So I checked the shift cable set and sure enough one was longer than the other. Duhhhhh.
    So I have to retract my earlier review statement. The shift cables (and brake cables) are long enough to reach the rear derailleur and disc brakes.

    As I stated before, these cables are good looking and the bare cable tubing is a nice touch. It keeps the cable totally encased and away from the elements. My only ding, and this is a small one, is I wish there was just a little bit more of the bare wire tubing. The routing on my frame could have used about another 4 inches of the shift cable tubing. Luckily, I was able to be creative and make it work.

    Be aware, if you have bare wire sections (no cable housing) along the frame of your MTB, and most do, installing the tubing will take you more time if you want to do it right and encase the bare sections. I must have spent a couple of hours making sure that I had every thing cut and fit properly. But the end result is well worth it!

    I love the color selection of these cables. They are easy to install and work well out of the gate. However, I continued to have problems keeping them running smooth after a few dirty rides. I'm typically not a "mud-bogger" but I do race and sometimes that means you're racing in wet muddy conditions. These cables didn't do well after a couple dirty rides and definitely not after a mud race.
    Fortunately, this kit cable with enough housing to replace every piece of housing on my bike so I was able to cable my bike with this kit twice by cleaning and reusing the inner cable.
    I have since upgraded to the Jagwire Mountain Pro Shift Cable Kit for $8 more but with a number of improved features for keeping the cables clean and smooth. So far, no problems.
    If you are a fair weather rider that avoids the mud and wet then this kit is probably great for you. If you ride no matter what in cold, wet and med then you should probably kick it up a notch and go with the Pro kit. Jenson has it for a great price.

      Comments about Jagwire Universal Sport Shift Cable Kit:

      I was able to use this for my front derailleur with no problems, but the housing was a little on the short side for my rear derailleur. I ended up having to buy more housing, which kind of defeated the purpose of buying this kit. I was still able to use the cable and ferrulls, so it wasn't a total loss. Overall works great, but I can't recommend it because i had to buy extra housing.

      • Road Biking

      Comments about Jagwire Universal Sport Shift Cable Kit:

      I guess you need proper cutting tools to cut housing and wire. I used wire cutter and it was difficult to cut. Also, near the end of installation the wire got frayed and was very difficult to put in the last end cap. I had to cut 2 inch of the end of the wire and I was lucky to have just enough wire. The second wire is shorter and was not long enough to use for the rear derailleur. Would I buy again, maybe but I have to get a different cutting tool.

        Plenty of room for front and back cables with a lot of extra housing to boot. I have a large frame bike, and the regular size was plenty for me.

            This kit includes all the flexability for all installations. Easy to use on Mountain Bikes harder on Road Bikes. I allways use a Dremel style tool to cut the housing since there is no crushing. Deburr is almost not needed.

              Comments about Jagwire Universal Sport Shift Cable Kit:

              Very happy with this shift cable set. The cables are ultra smooth and the housings are durable but flexible. I had no problems cutting either with a proper cable/housing cutter. Assembly was easy, and the included sealed boot for the lower housing is pretty slick.

              This set might be overkill for my wife's bike that only gets used once or twice a month, but it's great on mine which gets used every day.

                It's just a shifter cable kit, so no great shakes. What I really appreciate is the service. One of the items I ordered was out of stock. Rather than force me to wait, Jenson e-mailed me to confirm that I wanted to wait, rather than change finishes to an in-stock item. A small thing, but the right touch. Especially for such a small order. Pretty cool. Items shipped on time, arrived when promised.

                Cable is a little stiff and has a little more resistance moving in the housing, but it works when it's all you have.
