I have learnt that you get what you pay for, well most the time you do anyway, I can't expect a real cheap item to be as good as a more expensive item which leads me to my questions.
Do I purchase outers and inners as 1 item?
What brands should I be looking at?
If recommend to purchase separately, again what brands?
I think I may want to use either white, blue or even orange outers (to match the frame colors) does this change peoples recommendations?
if you purchase outers separately, do you by it by the length i.e a meter or do you have the choice of just purchasing the length you require?
Thanks for any help

My mechanic winges whenever I give him a set of those to install
I use them or similar if we are building a TT bike as they end to bend the cables up more - on a road bike I try to stick with genuine Shimano ones - they are very good and I've never had one break which I guess is a pretty good thing!
