    I note you are Newcastle based.......

    Although any "good" LBS should stock these there is one in particular that I am aware of in your area(ish).........

  • I beg to differ Nick... but they're not nokon... they're very similar admittedly...

    They're the alligator i-link system...

    Thats a very uncanny similarity, i wonder what the copyright depts of the 2 companies think???

    If ur looking for sealed cables can i throw Flying Snakes cables into the mix? ive been using a set for nearly 6 months and my gears are still as silky smooth now as when i fitted them originally.

    £22.99 from Evans if memory serves me correct.
