Shipping charges for this item to United States: $8.36
I install it to replace some original covers.
They come with all instructions.
The montage is simple and finishes are correct.
Unpainted metal caps. The cable is long enough, a very complete kit.
The front derailleur is fully protected against the ingress of dirt with a system of tubes that fit together.
The rear derailleur would have to wear a tight cap with retainer, which is not included i would have to put in to prevent dirt from entering the cable.
The covers are pretty stiff, they are tough.
I have always used the Gore sealed cables in the past but thought I would give these a try. Although we are not yet in the wet weather season they were simple nd easy to fit and shifting has been flawless so far. At half the price (or thereabouts) of the Gore version I would definitely use them again !!!
Brill cable set, although cutting the outers was a challenge!
Install easily, work fine, appear to seal well, not too expensive.
I always buy these cables. Very good value.
As usual, excellent service from Merlin. Cables work well. I'd say a noticeable improvement over the std wires I had installed before. Only time will tell if their 'weatherproof' billing holds up...
Easy installation, Light and does the job.
Good product for bikes which have interrupted outer cable runs. Silky smooth shifting which lasts, especially if a cable lube is used.
With time the cut ends of the outers tend to corrode a little inside the ferrule (as they all do) but a glob of grease or mastic inside the ferrule on assembly helps prevent this.
So far so good, I've had a lot of problems with my cables having to change them every couple of rides.
I've had these on for a few months now and still working fine.
Good sealed cable set with nearly all the benefits of Gore but at a very reasonable price. As always, order and delivery process from Merlin is first class and FAST !
Fitted a set to my winter bike and have been so impressed that I've now fitted them to all my Mtb's
