The Bicycling Guide to Complete Bicycle Maintenance & Repair, For Road & Mountain Bikes

Creator: Todd Downs | 2010-09-28

    Pretty, pretty good

    0 5/5 Zuby - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 7015913 Bicycle Fix Cable Set (Sports) Pretty good deal. Seriously. $8 for a brand new set of cables, housing, and even a few ferrules and cable tips. That's a LOT of cable for about $9. Check, now its $5.50 at Amazon. Damn good deal!The shift housings are coiled, not compressionless. If you have index shifter (shifters that are numbered), then you might want to look for compressionless shifter cables. If you have friction shifters (levers), you'll be fine. Still, the brake cables are universal, so you are fine in that respect.Just a tip (got from a friend): when you cut the cable, the ends can fray. If you do not have a bicycle cable cutter, what you can do is wrap a small amount (maybe 2-3 turns) of electrical tape around the point you will cut, and then cut the cable with a regular cable cutter, sort of snipping then turning then snipping again. I got a REALLY cut with this tip. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    Hard to beat

    0 5/5 JoK=) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 7015913 Bicycle Fix Cable Set (Sports) Great for fixing up the 30 year old Schwinn/Huffy/Ross/Murray that's been gathering dust.Still a pretty good deal for the newer (post 1985) indexed shifting bikes. In these bikes the brake cables will work fine, but the shift cables might be fussy. (Technical explanation : both the brake and gear cable housings in this set are tight spiral wound. Modern gear cable housing is loose spiral wound (100 mm period ), often called compression-less or constant-length. Some gear shifters will behave erratically with the Bell cable housing. Solution: buy a roll of Shimano SIS shift housing cable ... you can still use the Bell cables.)I've had no problems with Shimano indexed systems including Ultegra 10 , Dura Ace 9, and Deore XT. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 21, 2012

    Works pretty well

    These cables and housings aren't perfect, but they work pretty darn well. I replaced the all the cables on one bike, the rear brake and rear derailleur cables on another, and the front derailleur cable on yet another using these cables. So far, so good. The brakes are working better than ever. The housing condenses just a tad when the cable is being pulled, so my rear derailleur skips 1st gear, but I'm fine with that. All the other gears work, why do I need first? The front derailleur cable I replaced on a friend's bike seems to be working fine too. A word of advice: lube the inside of these cable housings. if you don't there's a bit more friction than one is ok with in a bike cable. I just drip some motor oil in there before I run the wires through them and it works like a charm. Put them on over a month ago and everything is still working as smooth as ever! :D I used these to fix two Giant boulder mountain bikes, and one Schwinn Mesa. All three had rapid fire / click-style gear... 5/5 Sean89us - See all my reviews This review is from: Bell Sports 7015913 Bicycle Fix Cable Set (Sports) These cables and housings aren't perfect, but they work pretty darn well.

    Awesome.

    0 5/5 jorge montelongo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Untaped Bull Horn Handlebars (Sports) I ride my bike fixed gear, these handle bars are nice and sturdy, made a huge difference going from a riser bar to bullhorns. The bars themselves are finished very nicely (got the white ones) they look so good without tape on them I've just been riding them without the tape. Overall it is a very good product at a great price. I ride mostly urban areas and a few big hills here and there, i weigh about 170lbs and haven't felt anything in the bars suggesting they are weak especially when I hit my cadence going up a steep hill. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 18, 2013

I wasn't the fan of the original handle bars my bike came with, and these ones makes it way better and easier to ride.
