Lined shifter housing needed

Does anyone have any 4mm lined shifter housing I could buy? I haven't been able to find it unless I buy 25 feet and I don't see how I would ever use that much.

I'm looking for about 6 feet, this is for a 1x11 shimano mtb shifter, which comes with the cable, but no housing. I have the ferrules for it.

I'd be very willing to send a few bucks through paypal for your trouble.

What's wrong with calling a Bike Shop near you and having them mail it to your Hollow.



Typical retail. $1.50 per foot.

If you are an Amazon Prime member here is the housing you need and it even comes with a spare cable for $7.50 delivered. The housing is 66" long so be sure that's enough.

I buy my shift and brake housing in 25" rolls and I'd be happy to send you what you need but I'm down to just enough shift housing to re-cable one bike.

Fortunately I haven't tossed the old RD shifter housing so I'm going to measure the housing and see if that is enough - it should give me a good idea of the length I will need. For my road bikes I usually buy the Campy brake/shift kits, but this mtb is a different animal. I'm using jagwire pro mtb brake cables/housings mainly for the compressionless housing. From everything I read it makes a big difference with mechanical disk brakes. This is my only bike with disk brakes.

Stopping is important (or slowing down, anyway). Shifting is a plus as well.

Your LBS will have bulk housing, probably Jagwire and will cut the length you need.
