Description is misleading, will not fit many bikes
The cables seem well made, but the description is VERY misleading, as I found out AFTER cutting the housing, so now I'm left with unusable and unreturnable set :-/
My fault for taking the website's description at it word and not measuring before cutting. Take care and verify this will fit you before purchasing!
* The housing is shift housing (linear strands, not coil) but the external diameter is 5mm, not 4mm as most shift housing. The extra width won't fit into many housing stops and most new shifters. Make sure your shifters and bike accepts 5mm shift housing!
* The rear derailleur cable is almost too short: 2m is barely enough for a 56cm bike. Shift cables are usually 2.3m or more.
* The cables doesn't seem to be PTFE coated, just stainless (this is actually a good thing, as coating usually wears fast and leaves flakes inside the housing).
