    It sounds like you'll need a extension kit, but it all depends on your specific setup, how/where the cables are run, etc. When you first open the package, it looks like you have pitifully few links, but when you start putting 'em together, they all add up to a pretty decent length.

    I don't understand your second question.

    Cheers, Chris

    You'll need to get an extention kit and a liner kit as well.
    If you're running a continious length without a break in the liner you need the liner kit for the rear derailleur for sure.

    You should have enough liner for the front derailleur by using the length in the kit you have designated for the rear (should have two pieces labelled for that). Measure it up and use the length that gives you enough.

    I found the easiest way is to strip off all the little beads and start by measuring the liner length first. I've done three bikes now with a continuous liner (not housing, just liner) instead of using the junction/union piece they want you to use to join the lengths of liner together. I though it sounded better than the lame "lube port" they add to the system. No problems so far.

    Then start adding the beads from the shifter end first. Leave the inner cable out until you've slipped all the beads on. Also leave yourself about an 1" extra liner just incase, you can always trim it off later. Lube the liner with a high quality lube along with the inner cable before assembly with something like Boeshield T9 Lubricant.


    As for the brakes, I've never had to do this cable system for brake but I would think the same would apply.

    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    If you're running a continuous housing I don't think you have a choice but to use a continuous liner as well. Liner kits aren't too badly priced and you get lots in a kit.

    The original design of the system is to use a union to connect two lengths of liner together. That connection point is a lube port. It wouldn't be needed nor would it work for a full length housing, unless you had some sort of cable stop on either side of the liner break for the housing to compress against.

    So yes, I would say you need a liner kit as well.
