Jagwire elite link - connect liner?

Hi guys,

I need rather long brake housing, the liner length provided is not enough.
So I bought another kit and thought, I could just connect the liners and swap links all over.
Yet there is no connector or such thing provided.
Any idea on how to connect two liner pieces?

But maybe it just makes more sense to buy a replacement liner as they come in 200cm each. Just don't want to wait for that spare part in case there's a way to simply sonnect what's there.
No idea why they don't provide such a length instead of small pieces.

Generally cables and casing (not sure exactly what your "liner" is yet) and such are best as a single segment. Casing butt joints do exist and for the right application a godsend. Inner cables can be linked by various methods including a cable splitter (as used by a S&S coupled bike). But usually a low friction liner/sleeve needs no end to end securement. Andy.

If you are talking about splicing the outer housing, these would work: https://www.amazon.com/Jagwire-Doubl.../dp/B001PT607M they also make a 4mm variety. A single continuous piece would be preferable.

The main thing that is being overlooked here is that Jagwire Elite Link 'housing' is not like your typical housing. It is reminiscent of Nokon and Alligator iLink housing. It's basically a Teflon liner with aluminium (yes, I'm English) sections that slide over the liner, like a bead necklace.



The only thing I could suggest is using tape of some sort to marry the two liners together, but this may not work as the tape may cause friction with the 'beads' links.

I suggest the OP questionesse Google Teflon/PTFE liner and buy the ID and OD of what you require. It can be bought in 1 metre lengths up to rolls of the stuff. eBay link: PTFE-Teflon-Tubing-Pipe-Size-Length-Selectable

Cool factor. Ability to follow tight curves. Fairly compressionless. And it knocks the heck out of your paint. Andy.

I've seen* The German Nokon Housing used to make low compression cable runs with tight bends
otherwise Impossible with regular Low compression SIS housing..

* a tight U to take the earlier STI Brifter's Cable routing from the straight out the side

to go back in and under the tape Nearby..


This was a Pro Mechanics Job Done for the team rider as seen on Cycling News..
