    Good deal on these cables?

    I'm upgrading to BB7s and was wondering if these are good. i can use the current cables, but just thought $15 is a drop in the bucket.

    Well, call it a housing/cable set. Good compressionless housings on a mechanical disc like the Flak Jacket (or Jagwire Ripcord) are a good thing. For cables either a good stainless or teflon coated stainless cable. If you're needing new brakes more than likely it's time to change housings and cables as well....although just changing housings and cables on your current brakes would likely yield better performance. Just something you need to do periodically.

    Oh, as far as Full Metal Jackets, wouldn't bother....been there done that...pain in the ass to set up well, just get the compressionless stuff.
