Great durable cables
Bought these a few times now, and they just seem to last and last.

Does what it says.
Hard to review a cable really. Bought one because the cable had frayed on my mountain bike. Fitted it. It works. Job done.

solid and reliable
I've bought quite a few of these now and I'm yet to be disappointed by the quality and price of these Transfil cables. They've all gone on to different bikes before you start wondering why I've bought so many if they're so great.

This cable was bought to fix my son's hybrid bike. It did take me a while to figure out what cable I needed, so marks off Wiggle for that.
The product itself is great - what can you say about a brake cable except that it fit as expected, doesn't stretch or corrode, and was easy to cut to size.

I like my inner cable the way I like my men - solid, strong, durable and well lubricated - and this doesn't disappoint. Highly recommended.

It's a cable . . .
Works well. Under a few weeks of heavy use, it seems to have not stretched. Or at least I haven't needed to adjust the brakes. It makes the brakes close so the bike stops. Like it's supposed to do.
Will buy again.

Quality for the good price.
Fitted into mates second hand bought MTB, lots of work went in to it, but brakes are just like new now, and this product is great, giving my mate confidence to go fast knowing he can use his brakes without fear of cable snapping.

Does the job
Bought to fix up a friend's MTB he uses for coaching canoeists whilst riding on the tow path and for local journeys.
Wouldn't buy for my road bike, but if you don't need to pay for top performance works absolutely fine and brilliant value.

Great value MTB brake cables, plenty long enough and quick delivery as usual.
Only room for improvement would be to include the end caps, but for this price I can live without them.

It's a cable!
Good value and good quality and fit for purpose OK
20 April 2013
Used these cable's for years now great product at a great price.
01 November 2012
Great product at a great price. I replaced the whole cables inner & outer and my old bike stops properly now.

Fine as always
Fine as always, get this one every time...until last time when I bought another one - bit cheaper.

Its a brake cable. Good price. This sentance is to reach the correct review length.

Good value cable
I decided to fit new cables myself for the first time - rather than leaving it to the shop - went for these and they were easy to fit and are doing a great job.

It's a cable at the end of the day and it does exactly what is required. All for a great price

Transfil Shimano MTB Brake Cable Inner
Exactly as it says on the tin!! For a great price too

I changed the front and back brakes and then installed this cable for the brakes at the back. Thus I can tell what is due to the brakes and what is due to the cable and I LOVE how this cable feels. It is very smooth and gives a great response under your hand. It allows fine control and is definitely long enough for any bike (had to cut quite a chunk off)

Connects the brake lever to the brake.
I got this to replace a frayed, oxidised, rusty brake cable on a mountain bike I got given. And now I have a rear brake that works, all for the cost of £1.75 and ten minutes of my time. Just remember to use a good pair of cable cutters and crimp on a cable cap when you're done, and you might need to re-adjust as most cables stretch with first use.

WHY PAY MORE FOR THE SAME?
A cable is a cable. However, the more I cycle the more I seem to fray them and the more they stretch! I don't see a reason to pay more when any cable is likely to be facing the elements year in year out. My current cable was replaced due to fraying. Only pay more if you are a fair weather cyclist as they rust, fray etc anyway. I would be interested if others have other opinions though.

Cheap and good quality
Excelent value and where the cable has been cut it has not frayed
28 April 2011
These are quite a bit cheaper than some others I have seen and they are excellent.
I use them with jagwire outer and the performance is excellent - why pay more for more expensive stuff....

Nice product, minimal packaging. Looks like a good quality cable and the performance of my V brakes greatly enhanced - couldn't believe the difference at first. I'd been thinking of going for a disc on the front, but having restored the efficiency of the V I don't think I'll bother just yet.

Does exactly what you ask of it. pull the lever and you stop. what more do you need?

Ideal for using with brakes
What can I say, hooked it up to my Cane Creek 200TT lever and my Shimano 105 caliper and BAM, suddenly I can stop! It's a brake cable...

Easy to fit. Made a big difference to my braking smoothness. No instructions. DO NOT CUT CABLE INNER UNTIL FINALLY THREADED THROUGH OUTER. I had to buy this cable as I made the above mistake with another cable inner which frayed and prevented me feeding it through the outer. There were no instructions with the K.ble complete brake cable set.
