In another thread it was recommended that a poster replace shifter cables due to constant stretch requiring adjustment. How can they stretch? I doubt the cable strands are being stressed to the elastic limit. Are cheap cables of a loose weave?
I've had to replace a cable but it was due to fraying and I paid absolutely no attention to what went back in. I've had no problems than an adjustment every couple to a few months won't deal with.
So is the brand of cable something I need to worry about?
