Mr MartinsI ended up not using this as the groupset came with cables, simple cables, nothing to say.
R.S. BathGreat product, silky smooth in operation. 1st choice when changing my cables. Merlin prices superb as ever.
Dr MidgleyFitted a pair of these inners to my mid-00s Ultegra equipped road bike, tuned the indexing after the 1st ride and they've been shifting solidly ever since. Ideal.
Mr Eskicii think this is the best wire. works fine
Mr MoraleeIt's a gear wire by Shimano... Cheap and it works.
Mr frazierGreat price. Replace every year and get that nasty gritty sand and salt out of your frame.
Des McShimano cables always the best-can always be depended on for consistency and quality .
Mr BowmanGo-to cable inner. Prefereable to the PTFE coated ones, which IMHO aren't suitable for internally routed cables.
Mr HowardReliable - lasts me a year of commuting and shifting daily!
KeithShimano cable is the best, this is my minimum standard for gear cable.
Mid Sussex CycleGood value and good quality gear cable. I prefer it to the PTFE cable which soon wears and clogs up making gear changes increasingly difficult.
MarkGood part easy to install and a nice little ferrel to go on the end of the cable
RobboBenchmark shift cable.
AndrewGreat cables, always use Shimano as they're pre-stretched
Dazmondo in MalvernSimple cheap packaging for stowage...usually carry one cut to length for the rear mech just in case. It's Shimano so quality assured.
Mr DukeGood quality with no real stretch issues once fitted. Easy to thread through cables and, if done properly, no annoying fraying. Buy a few and always have a spare or two to hand. Why not order some cable ends as well and you're set for a season or more. Good quality cable clippers are not a fortune either. I'm not trying to put your LBS out of business, but this is simple home maintenance stuff, especially if you have kids riding to school in all weather or you put in serious mileage. There are plenty of up-market alternatives with coated wires etc which may work better for high-end stuff, but this is basic, good work-horse stuff.
Mr WilsonDecent price and has made a huge difference to my shifting.
Martin122I have always used shimano cables. Does the job well.
Mr whiteBought this as a first timer cabling up my mountain bike ..can`t fault it, bought this as a separate item with gear outer...no problems.
Mr HeyesOver the years I have tried lots of different inner cables from the cheapest to the most expensive, and I always come back to these because for what they cost you cannot go wrong.
Mr DuckworthDoes what it should, changes my gears
Mr SowterBrought to replace my old cable, seems to be working like a charm so far, although time will tell how much it'll stretch.
Mr DavisGood cable replacement plus this came with the end.
Mr PrimroseDoes exactly what is expected of it, great product.
Mr GillanderGreat value. New casing and wire made my bike as new.
Mr kershawCheap, does the job and comes with the wire cap. Usual quick Merlin delivery and cheap price
Mr berryWhy spend more when you don't have to. Does the same job as any other more expensive cable which will be changed just as often.
Mr ChisemWorks fine!
Mr savageGood cable, can't see the point in paying too much for cables. More than enough length.
Mr nolanEasy to fit change all cables at home . Its a nightmare when one breaks on a ride
Mr CarterDoes exactly what it says on the tin, plus amazing prices as always from Merlin
Mr BanfieldVery good
