    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Novara Teflon Slick Shift Cableis rated4.0out of5by1.
    Rated4out of5byfromGood cable but prepartion is requiredBottom line = Do not be scared to buy this cable. It is a quality PTFE coated cable at exactly half the price of SRAM Slickwire. If you are willing to spend about 15min prepping this cable by taking the few cautionary steps below, you can help ensure a perfectly functioning cable and happier installation process. 1) Determine the appropriate metal nub end you need to use - mtb or road – but don't cut off the other end yet 2) On the end that you will be cutting off, apply a THIN layer of super glue along the entire circumference of the cable about 1 inch in length directly in front of the metal nub about to be discarded... allow glue to dry. 3) Cut within the super-glued portion of the cable directly in front of the metal nub you are not using. The superglue will help prevent the cable from fraying. 4) Lastly, apply a single, SMALL drop of superglue directly to the exposed metal strands of wire at the very end tip of the freshly cut cable... allow to dry. This will prevent the raw end from possibly snagging on the ferrule caps or the housing liner as you feed the cable through the housing. 5) Tip: before feeding the wire through the housing, coat the Teflon surface of the entire cable with a thin layer of grease to ensure optimal sliding of the cable in the housing. Honestly folks, these extra steps are the hidden costs you pay when buying a universal cable at very competitive price. If you don't want to prep the cable then by all means just cut it and run it. However if you don't want to head back to REI for round 2, please do yourself a favor and try out the method above. Hope this helped and you enjoyed saving money as well as a headache-free installation.
