    Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Cable and Housing Set:

    Recabled my Avid BB7 mtb disc brakes, this replacement set is exactly what a diy bike wrench needs. Housing, ferrules, and cable ends all good quality. Got my work horse Avids gripping like new for a fraction of taking it to a shop. I've done this bit of maintenance before, its worth learning and this set makes it easy.

      Good value. Over the years I've found that Nashbar 'house brand' stuff is surprisingly good. This is no exception.

            cable may be good & the housing may be good but there were no housing caps included. (should have been two included) I'm sure they would sell me a box of a hundred, but then what will I do with the other 99 ?

              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)

                  Its Jagwire; need I say more? Plus, there's enough housing for two bikes (for me).

                        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.
