Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good outer cable very smooth had them on my cannondale very impressed but now on brooklyn i needed a longer length for the whole cable 08 April 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by does what it says, great value Great value for really decent quality cable housing. Plastic end ferrules are a bit weak. 08 April 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Get XTR gear cables! There maybe better out there, but since I have started using XTR gear cable kits, I've never looked back, or sideways for that matter. From my own experience, the kit cable outers don't give me the right length, luckily here you can get extra bits, at the right length! Buy em while they last! 07 April 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great outer casing. Hard to squash, and already greased inside. Also has a nice little solid piece of plastic on the end so it fits nicely in your shifter. Overall excellent for £1.75. :-) 08 August 2003
Rated 5 out of 5 by i fink there gr8, come greesed and are pritty cheep 12 July 2003
Rated 5 out of 5 by This gear cable casing is outstandingly tremendous, the ultra light plastic used in this superb shimano design is close to legendary and is a must to complete any XC or FR bike. The smoothness of shifting is second to none and although the price is a little steep, it is deffiantly worth the little bit extra . A great peice of equipment, well done shimano. 01 February 2003

Answer: 
Yes. You will require a cable cutting tool that is designed specifically for cutting both inner and outer (housings) gear / brake cables. Click on "tools" in the drop down menu at the top of the page. There you can view the type of tool that is required. There are several different manufacturers who produce Cable Cutters. They do an excellent job, giving a quick and clean cut.

Answer: 
The cable outers can be cut using normal metal snips or pliers with a wire cutter. Cutters specifically designed for cables will give a neater cut as they deform the casing less during cutting. The ends of the cable outer should ideally be filed flat (using a standard metal file) to allow them to seat correctly in the cable end ferrule and to help get the smoothest shifting possible, the plastic inner liner should be splayed at the end using a tool such as a bradrawl. A dab of grease on the cut end of the outer helps stop corrosion and creaking caused by the cable end ferrule.
