Has anyone tried this product on a Stumpjumper, or any other bike with under the BB cable routing? Given our frequently sloppy conditions here in Oregon, I am considering them for my 120.

Dry Cables

This product was suggested in another thread.

sounds pretty similar to Gore Ride-On cables, which rock btw.

Give em a go. They cost about half what the gore cables do, so that's a good thing. Dealer cost for gores is like 50 bucks. I was like :eek: when I bought a set for my enduro.

Dry Cables Work Great

Used to ride Gore derailleur cables but can't find them anymore. Bought a set of shift cables from Dry Cables for my Giant VT and my buddy Jeff bought a set for his Specialized which has below BB cable routing. Cables are still running smooth and shifting perfectly a year later on both bikes. We ride through a lot of mud here in Connecticut. Dry Cables appear to be as good as Gore Cables. Anyone else had (good or bad)experience with Dry Cables?

has anyone found an alternative routing for sealed cables, that doesn't go under the bb and doesn't end up with ghost shifting? its a lot of money to shell out for new sealed cables everytime you lamp the bb off a rock...

you could make a guard maybe? my chainring guard usually hits rocks before my BB does. I think some people doin full length housing have tried alternate routing though.

Anybody tried Nokon cables?
