" Great Cables, bad creaking "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 12th Nov 2005 from West Coast Singapore

The Review
The brakes won't lockup when you turn your steering more than 90 degrees on either side with these cables, while others will, unless your brake is set super loose. Though no practical application on normal riding unless u turn ur bar 90 degrees while riding, but it does have a feel good factor. A must have for posers on v-brakes.

P.S. creaks like hell.

Strengths
These cables attract attention, shiny and colour to choose from. 100% poser value.

Weaknesses
Creaks, requires longer cable length for the bends then other cables so no weight save actually.

" feels like silk "


Overall Rating

The Review
i've spent almost a hundred bucks on previous cables each lasting about a month or two. with this so far so good. will update in a few more months.

Strengths
its a fit and forget cable system. really flexy. bend it and still shifts like silk. worth the money spent.

Weaknesses
installation is a bugger, really. the external finish has small unanodized portions (coz mine's black) had to cover with a permanent marker.
