I really don't understand, they provide plenty of housing, ferrules, everything else, but whoever decided on the length of the 'front' cable must have been working with a really tiny bike. Hey Jagwire, easy fix ship two long cables and let us snip the excess. You saved a maybe a buck in material providing a short cable but lost a fair amount of business judging by other reviews. It's a shame as the quality is quite good.
The rear brake cable was 3 feet longer than needed. The rear derailleur cable was 1 foot longer than needed. The front derailleur was 4 inches too short and that's after only removing the end I didn't need. Now I have a nonfunctional bike until I can get a cable that's long enough. Jagwire has lost my business. If universal means too short for a 54cm frame then universal doesn't mean anything.
This is the first cable kit I have ever tried that did not provide a generous length of cable. On installing the front cable it became frayed after the initial cut so I cut another inch off and found it to be too short! Otherwise the kit is of reasonable quality and offers a choice of color. It could be better and no excuse for a short cable.
I use the hyper cable kit on 2 of my bikes. The kit comes with everything you need minus the cutters and crimper. They're smooth, affordable, and attractive. I highly recommend them as a good value. I also have the Jagwire pro kits on a couple of bikes and if you've got the money, they're lighter and have less compression.
I try to replace the cables on my serious Double Century bicycles every year or at least every two years and this is the best cable set to use. Great price and over the top quality for a dependable setup that works perfectly. My components are SRAM Red on both my SWorks and Litespeed and these cables work perfectly all the time.
This is an easy to use kit for any bike. I installed it on an old steel frame, Giant bike. The cables are very high quality and very flexible. The bike assembled very nicely with these cables. All end clips and cable end are included for a clean finish.
This cable set was easy to install and work great. They give you plenty of cable, housing and accessories to work with. I would definitely buy this set again and I recommend them.
Kit was fine except that it came with two different inner cable lengths and the front derailleur cable was not long enough. Odd given that there was way more than enough cable housing. So it ended up being of low value and pricey given I had to buy another inner cable.
These cables were put on a bike that will never be ridden again. I restored my older daughter's very first road bike, a birthday gift when she was 5 years old, a 34 size Scapin with 16 in wheels, Campy drive train, Modolo brakes and Nisi wheels. The bike is now 25 years old and will be used a wall art since between her and her husband (both triathletes) they have more bikes than fingers! Right colors, right prices, does the job just fine.
The kit is complete to include rubber frame savers. Installation is easy and the kit once installed is very attractive. Provides clean, crisp shifts. I may not use Campagnolo or Shimano cable kits ever again.
