Does anyone know where I can get and have these cables fitted? Preferably in Gauteng PTA/JHB.


Here's what they look like:

Jason....

 

Do yourself a favour and save that R1000 for something else!!  IMHO it is not worth the $$$.  And all the bikeshops (3) I spoke to confirmed. 

 

The look nice though!! 

 

Barend has got a set on his bike....ask hima about it.

Ry die bliksem met Nokon?


The only reason I'm looking at installing Nokon is, currently the cable scratches the frame (I don't have those plastic stick on things) and if I understand correctly fitting the Nokon cables will prevent the cable from touching the frame, thus preventing scratches Smile. I also read that the shifting is smoother and the wear is less and they're lighter Thumbs%20Up and they look nice!

I'm looking at re-spraying the frame so I just wanna sort all the little bits out. What would you recommend Spidey?

Well....if you have the $$ and Michelle is not to worried about going out for dinner for a monthner, then you should go for it.

 

I have ridden with the Nokon cables.  Not any smoother than the (Can't remember their name now...these ones:

But yes......the frame scratching is a bit of a problem.  And as you pointed out....they look cool and are light.

 

Bitch to put on though.....Big%20smile

If you just want to protect the frame, get saome Jagwire cable condoms. I think Cape cycle systems are the SA agents, may be wrong.

Shimano do not recommend Nokon cables as it causes to much friction and adds additional stress to the Sti lever.

 

STI MEANS SHIMANO TOTAL INTERGRATION

My experience with nokons have been incedble! I've had them now for 13 monthes... riding through mud.. rocks wet weather... dry weather.. and i'v not lubed them once! The amount of labour i've saved in the last year from replacing cables and sleeves makes it worth it... nevermind the hassle free of just getting on and go!

 

Less friction / Smoother

Weight advantage

sealed system

tight cornes

- ps you get sleeves for the areas you don't to get scratched on the frame!Shocked
