So I went ahead and bought an Alligator Super Fortress brake cable kit from Pricepoint due to them being on sale and have yet to install it. First thing I noticed was that the cable structure is similiar to a compressionless shifter cable where it has strands of metal wires instead of the spiral core common with Shimano brake cables. After reading Sheldon Brown's web site, it states that compressionless stranded cables are not safe for brake use. So, what is the verdict on Alligator cables, in particular the Super Fortress cables. Are they good to go? Anybody have first hand experience with them?
