Simple and reliable
I have tried the PTFE coated cables that are more expensive, and to be honest, these cables are far more reliable. No coating to rub off and clog the cables, just simple stainless steel cable.
Gear changes are smooth (not discernibly different to the PTFE coated cables), the cables wear better and they are relativley cheap.

Quality and affordable
Good quality, good price, works well so far.
Time will tell if they will last but i couldn't fault them and they were easy to fit.

Great quality product, well packaged and ready to go

Invest in a new cable to replace the old and rusty one you have now. Improved shift quality for less than £3.

Bought this for my mountain bike as mine had broke. Found this easy to fit. A little to early to tell the quality of this product as i've only used the mountain bike a couple of times but so far so good

Quality product and reasonably priced as a replacement cable

High quality wire
I got this wire to replace a frayed wire on my bike. I was very surprised to see this superior quality wire along side what I had. It fitted well, easy to cut & clamp on. So impressed I bought more

Shimano are the industry standard for a good reason - it works first time every time and keeps working ...

Good replacement cables
Good price for a replacement cable... just be sure to use a good quality cable cutter to avoid fraying the cable when cutting

Great cables used when upgrading my groupset. Value for money.

Not sure what to say about this, but it does the job perfectly.

Perfect, easy to fit and has transformed my ride from a "Get Into Gear Now" swearathon into Aaaaah, the right gear, right now.
Recommended if your cable is fraying along with your temper!

It's gear wire, it works!
Not much so say, bought it, fitted it, it works. Can't really say much else as I have never been able to tell the difference between wires.

Brilliant as the cable does not oxidise and tighten in the outer sheath.
27 January 2015
Does exactly what it says on the tin
What can you say about a piece of wire?
Great Wiggle service as ever.

Excellent quailty as expected
excellent quailty as expected from Shimano. Good price and does the job as it should

good quality fitted easy and has not stretched/ needed adjustment since fitted it 500 miles ago

Usual Shimano quality. I have tried other inner cables & conclude Shimano is by far the best

2 out of 2 unravelled
Just had to fit two new gear cables. Have always used Shimao cable in the past but on this occasion when I cut the excess cable off both the cables, the cable strands unwound back to the nut holding the cable to the derailleur.
I'll look for another brand for the next cables.

I use these on all my bikes and my other halfs bikes, currently thats only 5 (I'm working on that one). They last a long time so the extra you pay over cheaper options is deffinatly worth it.

Good quality and easy to fit
First gear cable set I've replaced. Has been the easiest thing I've done to my bike. NB. Adjusting the rear sprockets afterward is the difficult bit. Make sure you have a sharp tool to cut this cable afterwards.

does job well
normal shimano quality, easy to install. Can't comment on durability as only been on bike a month, but shimano cables normally last over a year before stretching - recomended.
17 June 2014
Pulls up and has not stretched either
Great I fitted new ones as fitted new levers and so far they have done the job well. Am well Pleased

There's not much to say about a cable - however, when I came to fit it I realised that if it hadn't been so neatly cut, there is potential for the cable to fray before or while you thread it into the outer. It looks like it has been cleanly cut and deliberately sealed to prevent that from happening.
The job itself was easy to do and I haven't had to adjust the tension since fitting the cable, so very pleased.. Makes a huge difference to the quality of shifting and the lever feel. Recommended.

Does the job with no fuss
I installed this quickly and easily, with no unravelling of the cable as sometimes happens when putting it through the outer cable.
