    Gear cables

    I need to replace my gear cables. I have alligator i-links and the sleeve and outers are fine, just need new inners. I've had a look and can't see that you can buy just the i-link inner cable, only the whole set.

    A couple of questions:

    Does anyone know if you can buy just the inner cables anywhere?

    What is a decent alternative - I.e. what do you lot use?

    Powercordz, about 1/5 of the weight of regular steel cable.
    Derailleur Cordz Set 1.2mm
    search on ebay for best prices.

    You can use them with the Alligators or any housing.
    I'm using them with Gore UL, and yes, they shift well.
