    too small for my thicker cables, way too much money for minimum quality..but technically will do what they stated

    well...I could say that it is exactly as it looks...and this would accurate and it would be enough..you get what you pay for and sometimes less I suppose. These will do exactly what they say that they will..but you could have done it with just the tie wraps or with metal or plastic flex pieces from a bike shop for much less money. I guess that I would not be so disappointed were it not for the fact that it feels like they cheeped out and that they did not take into account thicker mountain bike cables as these pre-made plastic clips are not big enough for my cables and the tie wraps do not fit all the way around my aluminum mountain bike frame. Even the tie wraps are the lowest quality, thinnest type you could possible have sent out. Again..if you have a normal round tube bike, these will technically do what they say that they will. But I will tell you this...for this money, I can go get good quality at a bike shop and they will fit my mountain bike frame.****I received... 3/5 salt of the earth (waukegan, il) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bike Cable Collector Suit Shift Cable Housing Set Holder Cable Fix Tool for Shift/ Brake Cable Include Rotating S-Hook C-Clip Housing/Hose Guide Alloy Stick-On Guides C-Clips Nylon Cable Ties 32Pcs well...I could say that it is exactly as it looks...and this would accurate and it would be enough..you get what you pay for and sometimes less I suppose.

    Budget Cables Offer Big Performance.

    5/5 Jeff H - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 7015913 Bicycle Fix Cable Set If you're someone flipping bikes, these cables from Bell are a great deal. My only problem with them is that they tend to fray a bit easily, but that could just be me. I agree that the shifter housing (identical to the brake housing) isn't ideal for index shifting--but, it can work. I currently have two late 80's Schwinns (an '88 Tempo & '86 Super Sport), both indexed with a 6 & 7 speed Shimano 105 drivetrain respectively, and with a some very careful tuning, indexing will work. However, I wouldn't trust the cables to index a 9/10/11 speed cassette because there would be too much slop. Overall though, especially with older drivetrains, these cables are a steal.

    Pretty, pretty good

    5/5 Zuby - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell PITCREW Bike Cable Change Kit (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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    5/5 Zebulawn - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 7015913 Bicycle Fix Cable Set These cable kits are a great way to do a full tune up on a bike at a fraction of the cost of cables from a bike shop! They are dual sided and you just cut off the end you dont need. The end caps for the cables are a bit thin and cheap but they do they job ok. All housing in the kits if 5mm housing (brake size) vs 5mm and 4mm (shift size). This causes no issues.

This review is from: Bicycle Tire Lever - Premium Hardened Plastic Levers to Repair Bike Tube - Must Have Tool Kit for Road Bicyclist - Set of 3 - 4 Colors Available (Black / Silver / Gold / Pink) (Misc.) I purchased these to use on both a mountain bike and touring bike tire. The broad end works well to pry off the tire bead and the hook is handy to keep the tool in place by hooking it to a spoke while you use an additional tool to take a second bite. However, these are not very durable and one of the hooks broke while I was using it to slide between the rim and tire bead.Update: I am now rating this as 5 stars: FunFitness saw this review and immediately provided free replacement levers.

    I am going to put these on soon, but I wanted to clear up some confusion that I out there on this product. There are 2 different lines, the 500 series and the 600 series. The 500 series is for older bikes that use friction shifting, while the 600 series is for indexed shifting on newer bikes. To tell the difference check if your bike has shifting that has a numbered set of stops for the various gears. If it does then you have indexed shifting and the shifter cables for the 500 series will not work as well with the shifters on your bike. So remember, if your bike has shifting that has a number that corresponds to a gear you need the 600 series. I will return a verdict on this product once I have installed them.Update: Still haven't installed them but was looking at what comes with kit.
