Needed the housing, dumped the cables.

    Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Cable and Housing Set:

    I needed the housing for my road bike. Great value. If you have a road bike with disc and want compressionless, you can get this kit and a cable set, and still save money vs buying a dedicated compressionless kit elsewhere.

        quality cable set, but not for road type levers (cross bikes, tandems, etc.)
        may fit some, did not fit my shimano 105 levers.

        description needs to call out the cable end type.
        (barrel type, not mushroom type)

            I have been purchasing bike parts and clothing from Nashbar for over 20 years, never had a problem. Looking to do more business with Nashbar in the coming years.

              Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Cable and Housing Set:

              I've purchased several sets of these over the last couple of years and have used them on MTB and road bike applications without issue. High quality and robust construction make these desirable cable sets. I've replaced the stock cable sets on MTB rim and disc brake units and found the installation easy and the adjustment smooth. I'm not sure why an earlier reviewer stated these won't work on road bike brakes unless there was a problem with a specific bike.

                I have a 23" 29er frame with discs - about the biggest application for this set. I read a review saying it wasn't long enough for this so I was worried. Not to worry; it worked great! It was much cheaper than other options and high quality - no reason to buy a higher-priced alternative. I'm very pleased.

                Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Cable and Housing Set:

                These are beefy cables with high dollar Jagwire teflon wrapped housings in a dark grey color. These stealth cables would go for 2 or 3 times the price if not disguised under the Nashbar brand. They will be an excellent and extremely cost effective upgrade to any v-brake or cantilever system as well. I've bought 3 sets so far. They may be too short for a rear mechanical disc brake on a really large MTB, and will be too short for a rear tandem mech. disc. They won't work on road bike levers. You will need a quality pair of cable cutters to install these!

                  Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Cable and Housing Set:

                  Absolutely phenomenal value. It's cheaper, lighter and better performing than standard name brand brake cable set (and way cheaper than any other kevlar jacket cable). After stretching the cable, levers feel much firmer over standard steel coil housing. On my disc brake mtb, the difference isn't as dramatic, but on my canti-brake cross bike, lever pressure required for hard braking is noticeably reduced. Wish Nashbar had road and derailleur cable set versions with this type of housing.

                    I got these as part of the Nashbar Disc brake set and they are Jagwire Kevlar jackets. Kind of hard to beat at this price. Great action and they survived a brutal WI winter of riding without issue. Ordering another set NOW!
