Is crimping req'd.? If so what tools are needed? I have ordered 60" & 80" length derailleur & brake cable housings. Is any cable lube req'd. when using housing are lined with teflon sleeves?

Crimp not required. Use special housing cutters to cut housing to minimum required length + a little. Use lite lube with all but Gore housings.
