    f600 brake cable opinions?

    I have a sobe f600, few years old. the mech disk brakes are awesome, but the rear cable has been crappy since the firts stream cross... are the full metal jacket cables a good option for me? riding in NH, so a lot of... inclement (but fun!) weather. thanks!!

    The Avid Full Metal Jacket cables are the best for Avid BB5/BB7 brakes. They are so smooth......the lever action feels exactly like hydros. Make sure your brake calipers have the cable-end dust boots intact. If not- you can make some out of the same rubber boot found on V-brakes. Just cut them in half, and drape each end over the exposed caliper boot flanges. I recommend them!
