    Bulk derailleur housing and inner wires?

    Any good deals out there on bulk derailleur housing? I like Shimano OT-SP41 housing, most online sellers have it for $25 for a 10m (33ft.) roll.

    At Universal, the cheapest Jagwire stainless inner wires are $3 each (2300mm shimano/campy) or $8 each for the Teflon coated version.

    I haven't found any places that sell the inner wires in 6-packs or 10-packs to get better prices.

    Jenson used to sell cables for less, though the last I checked they were oos. Thanks for the heads-up on universal. As far as housing, I use jagwire's higher-end bulk housing. It is cheaper than the Shimano, and in my experience, not a big difference between it and the Shimano, though I used to use the Shimano dura ace kits when I could find them for $15.

    Jenson has a ten-pack of Shimano cables for 12.99....not too bad a deal.

    Part of why the price is so low is those cables are not stainless steel.

    Sram shifter housing. $0.50/ft (approximately)
    Amazon.com : Sram Shift Housing 4mm X 30m Box, Black : Bike Shift Cables And Housing : Sports & Outdoors

    Sram shifter cables. $1.30/each (approximately)

    Probably not going to beat that. Go in with some friends.
