...Sirius Consolidated Inc. or the Old Bike Barn?
I'm looking for both some push and pull cables for my ride and they are both around the same price but sometimes, price isn't the issue, the quality of the company can usually trump that.
Also, any suggestions on grips? I don't think I'm into the foam ones.

Thanks guys!

I've ordered from both. Both places get the job done. Sirius is a bit slower because they are in Canada I think.

I didn't have any problems with Sirius when I ordered my throttle cables. At least not with the company itself. I got grey cables instead of black ones but when I looked closer at the pictures, they were grey there too.

I've never used the Barn though.

i've ordered a lot from sirius, expect a week and a half to two for delivery. they sometimes carry both a black and a grey cable listed separately. my only beef was getting a grey cable with a black friction guard. that and the stupidly expensive price they want for replacement diaphragms for 350 cv carbs.

Thanks for the replies back everyone.
Sounds like I'll go with the Bike Barn as I'd like black cables and not grey.

Any thoughts on grips? What's your personal preference?

I know these are trivial/silly/small questions I'm bringing up, but, I just like to know what others have done in the past. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

sirius con inc has always been fantastic to deal with, old bike barn however the 2 times i've ordered from then (and never again) the sold me parts that were back ordered, after i asked if they were in stock. ended up taking 7 weeks to get my remote resevoir master cylinder, and 5 weeks on my fork springs
