About to give my summer bike a long over due strip down and proper service. As part of that I'm going to replace the brake cables. Currently running the standard DA 9000 cables but looking at replacing with Jagwire Road Elite link. Anyone got any experience of that or any other good alternatives?

I changed from DA 9000 cables to Jagwire, never had any problems, breaking is great. They look a lot better and save weight to. I'm sure some others will chime in with alternatives which are lighter.

The links are great. Last so much longer and you can just change out the liner for a few bucks and they are as good as new.

I have gone from the elite link to the elite sealed on my TT bike. The sealed were much easier to get install, and actually handles the hard bends better. Both of them have replaceable liners.

For cables I think the jagwire ultraslick are worth the price.
