I put these on my new niner to bling it up a little. Cables work great, same resistance as stock shimano cables. Just enough jacket for my niner shifters I had 3" left over. I cut easily with aviation snips then poked an auger in the end to reshape it. worked great....
The shifter housing is roughly the same diameter as standard brake housing, so I couldn't install it in a SRAM road shifter unless I removed the ferrule from the shifter end. I tried using the oddly shaped ferrules that were included and a standard ferrule for brake housing. Without a ferrule, the end of the housing isn't seated snugly against the inside of the shifter. I could see it moving when I was adjusting the derailleur before I wrapped the bars. Plus it seemed like there was some compression in the housing so it was hard to adjust the derailleur to stay in the largest cog. I had to overtighten the bolts to keep the coated derailleur cables from slipping. The front still slipped though. Would not recommend.
