New rear gear cable

Nokon gear cableSpent an hour changing the damaged rear gear cable on my beloved Liteville 301 for Nokon aluminium segment ones.  It runs through the frame to get to the rear and the old one was really tight to remove, probably because it was blocked with dirt where it goes from the bottom bracket into the right chain stay.

Advantages of these aluminium segment cables is their flexibility and strength, they are much better for tight bends than the multi-strand wire ones usually used.  The gear change feels really good, but they always do when new so tie will tell 🙂

We’ll see how long this one lasts.  The original ones have done 5,673km; 109,843m and 422hrs of ride time.  It was still running quite well, but I damaged the old one and it was bothering me a bit.
