Right, I'm a bit clueless...

Putting together a bike at the moment, have the bulk of it together, Campag 10S Ergo on a Planet X Kaffenback with Canti's.

Can someone recommend me a set of brake and gear cables & housings, cheaper the better!!!

I really don't have a clue where to start looking or if there's any issues I should be aware of in terms of compatibility.




  • I use Clarkes premium gear brake and gear cable set. I use them on my road bike and MTB. Good quality inners and outers. I bought a new set from Halfords online the other day (they are doing 3 for 2) they are £8.99 a set and I got some new Easton bar tape thrown in for free!

    Hope that helps.

    Cheap? Just go to any LBS and ask for generic inners and outers. They will have rolls of outer - and cut off lengths for you. Inners will be purchased separately. Usually just a few quid for the outers and around £2 each for the inners.

    Not cheap as such but by a long shot the slickest shift ive ever felt came through these:
