Beware! It may not work at all.
If you have Campagnolo cables, the magnet doesn't work, as Campy stainless is of high enough quality to be non-magnetic. If the cable opening at the back end of your chainstay is small (like a Wilier Zero.7) none of the feeder cables in this kit will fit through the hole. The tool becomes a very expensive paperweight, since it only works for the part of the frame in which it is unnecessary. Thread and Superglue made a very cheap and workable tool for my frame and cable.

Get this to avoid frustration

Like Novocain for your cabling woes
Previously, I had re-cabled internally routed bikes using all the tricks and hacks with only the occasional slip up that required “extra effort” accompanied by a cloud of choice words. I bought one of these thinking, “it’s an over-priced magnet but what the heck.” After having re-cabled several bikes it has a permanent place in my toolbox. With all the different heads it’s easy to pull cables, housing, and hydraulic hoses through your frame. Tiny little holes at an angle are no longer a problem. Neither is extra material inside your tubes from less-than-perfect frame assembly. Routing a cable was previously a 5-50 minute job depending on the frame. Now it’s always a five minute job. Do you absolutely need one of these? No. But it’s possible to do a root canal without Novocain, too. Save yourself the pain and pick one up. Why only four stars? Because it’s still an expensive magnet. But it’s a really useful magnet that deserves consideration for your toolbox if you regularly re-cable bikes with internal routing.

A must for some frames.
- I've put it through the wringer
If you have a carbon frame with a hollow downtube, just save yourself the hassle and pick this kit up. I learned from experience that fishing hoses and cables through a hollow downtube can take hours, but this kit turns that into a few minute job.
