A broken cable can bring a good ride to a screeching halt. If it happens in the middle of nowhere there's not much that can be done. Bringing this kit along, however can save the day. The kit includes an assortment of cables and fittings that can get you back on the road again. Everything fits inside a little 2 1/2" x 3/4" metal can, which can be worth its weight in gold if ever needed.
