    Good job! Avid Full Metal Jackets are great!

    So my new ride, put together a bit ago with left over cables/housing hanging around, until..... the FMJ set I'd ordered came in. Soooooo nice. Were the really needed? Not really, but I like 'em. Picked ups ome extra heat shrink tubing to cover over the tubing/housing connections. I need to get some new boots for the caliper ends one of these days to really seal things up nice and good.

    Warning:setup not exactly like it says in the directions. Was a pain getting the tubing into the TT housing guides.

    Everyt hing feels so smooth now! Thinking I may try and cadge something like this up for my shift housing in the straight sections as well. Anyone ever tried that?

    If you're needing some new cables/housing for your mech disc brakes, these are worthy of consideration.
