CAG11

Shift Inner Cables

Jagwire Stainless Slick ® premium shift cables CAG11 $4.95 each buy button

These are very high-quality rust-proof cables. The cables are die-drawn to smooth out their surface for reduced friction, improved shifting.

These fit all modern derailer shifters.

Jagwire Stainless Slick ® premium shift tandem cables $7.95 each buy button

As above, but in tandem length (3100mm).

Ejac Cable for Huret, Schiwnn, Benelux EJAC French "Universal" Gear Shift Cables CAG04 $3.95 buy button

"Universal" French gear shift cable, fits Huret, Schwinn, Benelux.

These are traditional "universal" double-ended cables, standard cylindrical fitting on one end, disc fitting on the other. Cut off the end you do not need.

These are not nearly as nice as the stainless "Slick" cables listed above, so we do not recommend them unless you need the disc type fitting. If you have a Hurét or Benelux shift lever, including "Schwinn Approved" units actually made by Hurét these are the only ones that will fit without modification.

75" (1900 mm) length. Made in France

Sturmey-Archer 3-speed Cables buy button

Genuine Sturmey-Archer universal cables, black housing. These have long housing to run all the way down to the chainstay if your bike uses full housing. If your bike uses a pulley system, trim the housing to suit. Includes bolt-on "anchorage" to attach to the indicator spindle.

For best results, use modern lined housing instead of the plain housing included with these.

Ferrules, Crimps and Donuts

These minor items are so cheap we don't charge for a few of them (with purchase of other items). If you want a large quantity, you can buy them by the bottle.

Ferrules 5 mm

Ferrules help keep the cut housing end aligned with its stop hardware, helping reduce cable friction.

They are essential for index housing to keep it from fraying.
