    Need black brake cable casing

    Hi,
    I am restoring a bike and I need 5 feet of black cable casing. I don't need the interior part. Give me an email back regarding your cost plus S & H. Desire either clean or new cable. Thanks, Jim

    Any LBS should sell brake (or shift) housing by the foot for only a dollar or so a foot. Black is almost universal.

    Yep, a dollar per foot is what I pay at my LBS for black cable casing.

    99 per foot at my LBS
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    The stuff I bought was $15 for 55 inches and cable.

    On the off chance that he meant it ... did anybody actually e-mail a response to him?
