    Not what was promised

    0 1/5 BillBK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 109512 Brake Fix Bicyle Cable Set Am I the only person who would think that when you buy a brake cable set for a bicycle, it would mean 2 cables - one for each brake. Product arrived and was only one cable. In addition, the product description was listed as: "Brake Fix Brake Cable Set, Double Ended Fits Most Common Bicycle Brakes, Easy To Install, Comes With Extra Ferrules & End Cap". Package did NOT come with extra ferrules & end cap. Not worth sending it back. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 22, 2013

    Tough to beat!

    0 4/5 Daniel V.Garrett - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 109512 Brake Fix Bicyle Cable Set These cables are truly tough to beat for the price. When fixin' up the neighbors kid's bicycle and they being a single parent who really can't afford to spend money on such things, especially when food & rent are the big worries for them and you can't afford to spring for those designer-type cables for 3 or 4 times as much you get'em these Bell cables. They work just great and make everyone concerned happy AND the kid will be safe again. And that's what its all about ain't it? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2013
