    Comments about Q2 Ultralight Road Shifter Cable and Housing Set:

    The housings seem OK, but the cable barrels and ferrules are the wrong dameter for Shimano: they are too small and wiggle around. Here're the sizes of original and this kit:

    Original This kit
    Housing: 4mm 4mm
    Barrel: 4.3mm OD 3.87mm
    Ferrules: 5.8mm OD 5.16mm

    I will use the housing but the rest is junk and I'll buy cables at the bike shop and reuse my old ferrules.

    Comments about Q2 Ultralight Road Shifter Cable and Housing Set:

    I found the barrels at the cable ends are smaller diameter than the originals, and the ferrules are likewise smaller OD than originals. They wiggle around in the sockets more than I like.

    I may return these because although they seem to be holding after installing and tuning, I don't know how long it will be so.
