I have gear cables - they were on spesh offer 1 year ago = 1/2 price.

Fit them as you would for steel cables but you need to loop the end around the bolt, as opposed to having the cable stright to increase the contact area.

They are quite difficult to cut, especially with scissors as the strands are so increadibly fine that they go between the blades.

found photo of how I did it. The end is held in place with heatshrink sleeve but not heated.

Keener eyed viewers will notice that the clamp has been filed down.

Also since taking the photo, I made tiny washers to fit next to the cable ends that allow the inner cable to go through but not the liner - this reduces the amount of liner needed.
