    Novara Shift Cable Housing - 25' Coil on clearance for $13.94

    Plus today (3-20-2017) an extra 25% off. A lot of stores are out of stock, I had checked online and a store near me said they had "limited supply", I had to hunt around for it and found it behind something else. But you can buy it online.

    EDIT: this is REI. This is their old house brand, I'm sure that is why it is on clearance as they have dropped the Novara brandname for a new one that I can't remember at the moment.

    In for one! Thanks!! FYI, they have two varieties: plain and branded for a dollar more. Both made by Jagwire, if I'm not mistaken..

    I don't see the point of trying to save a couple bucks on something like housing. You can get a 33 foot roll of Shimano SP41 at Jenson for $17:

    I learned long ago not to bother with alternatives to SP41. So did folks at Bike Mag:

    Still have a bunch of Jagwire Mtn Pro myself and never had a problem with it, but like 90% of problems come from incorrect install rather than the cable unless you run in the muck a lot.

    Ditto! Having said that, thanks to the OP for posting a good deal. For many it's worth checking out.

    Oops, someone had posted in the REI Dividend forum and I had posted this there then copied and pasted, forgetting that I no longer had the "REI" part.

    I've used it for years and it's always worked well for me. But at the regular price, the Jenson is a better deal, I'll have to remember that (though 25' will last me awhile).

    Bike Inn has SP-41 for $11.95 a roll. I picked up two rolls for $25.85 shipped. Best price I could find.

    Nice find. Weird shipping fee anomaly on this product . . . they will ship a 33' roll of housing to USA for only $2.95 but if I want a single pair of brake pads it is $6.45. I mention brake pads because they have Shimano J02A (finned/resin) for $10.95. Oh well, either shipping amount is a nice change from the ~ $25 flat fee at most German sites.
