A quick look at cable cutters on Wiggle/Ribble etc just made me splutter tea all over my keyboard.

Any idea why so expensive? And do I really need cycle-specific cutters when replacing brake/gear cables when I could probably go to B&Q and save myself £15-20!?

Can anyone recommend a good set for a sensible price?

Cheers,

I had some Draper ones for ages that did the job just fine and were less than a tenner

Thanks guys, guess it's just another cycle-specific overcharging scenario. I'm off to eBay!...
