Just looking at replacing my cables and heard a lot of good things about Jagwire cable sets, however when I looked online they state they are only specified or fit Sram and Shimano and there is no mention re. Campag.

Surely they fit Campag groupsets don't they ????

    The last two jagwire sets I have bought worked with Campag - both 10 and 11 speed. The inner wires are double ended, Shimano/SRAM one end, Campag the other.

    I'd skip jagwire and go straight for gore... Much better cables, simply amazing!

    I've got Jagwire cables on my winter bike and they've performed faultlessly, making the old Tiagra feel new again. As above, they come with double-ended cables with a "C" or "S" marked on the stop to tell you which one to keep and which one to cut. Get some cable cutters to do the job though - I bought a pair in Screwfix for a fiver and they've worked fine.

    How well you fit them will determine how well they work, to a far greater extent than the brand.

    The Jagwire racers are fantastic, apart from the silly 'pop' ferrules which don't fit the brake stops properly.

    Can you replace Gore inners easily? They only seem to be sold as a complete system. If you snap/break an inner cable do you have to buy an entire new set of outers and inners? Could prove expensive.
