Every source I find by Googling sells the 3 speed cable and housing as a set. I just want the cables.

...I make my own, using a crimper and wire leader crimps from the fishing tackle department, and a length of regular old derailleur cable and lined housing.

The end that goes into the trigger shifter just needs a steel crimp of the proper size for the cable you use. The end that goes into the screw barrel on the hub end is also a crimp, after the housing and screw barrel are threaded on. I think that might be why you're having trouble finding anything that doesn't include the housing. Most people are not equipped to do the crimping.

For $9.98 plus shipping, you can get a Sunlite cable plus housing.

I don't think you can find a better price if you try for cable only.
