I purchased the Red Low Friction Red Cable for my racer and after using it, I was soon back for more to pimp up my tourer!
The low friction cable makes quite a difference, particularly in the cold (I don't know the science behind this)
A great upgrade!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NineBolts High quality cable system
I wanted good cables and needed to have white outers for the right look on my vintage bike. Those were the key reasons why I ended up buying the gore cables. At that stage I hadn't realised that Gore have since got out of the cable market so these must be old stocks.
You get the complete set which includes ferrules crimps and even little rubber sleeves to put over the crimps. The quality is very good but the best part for me is that the lengths of the supplied inner and outer are long enough that I have spares for both front and rear (my brake levers allow me to use either type of cable end)
The cables are lined with a Gore material, it's almost invisble although you'll notice how slick they feel. Where you have to be careful is with the cuttingand fitting of the cables, one of mine snagged a little and caused the lining to ruck up a little. Some carefull threading through of the cable was required but fitting details were not supplied with the cables so I only found out about this after the first attempt.
Cables don't normally need instructions but the specifics of the Gore linings require some slight change in technique. It's probably easiest to thread the cables through the outers before you fit them to the frame or bars. Use good cutters that don't pinch the cable or a dremel type of tool with a cut off disk.
