Hello, Matt with Power Cordz here. We've lurked around the Weight Weenies forum for long enough! We'd like to open up some conversation with Power Cordz riders or light bike enthusiasts who might have questions for us.

edit: Removed product description. We want to answer questions, not advertise.

We strive to give you a better riding experience, and since there are a number of users on the forum, we thought we'd start the conversation.


Looking forward to chatting with you,

matt@iodupont.com

Hi Matt.
Anyway of getting around the cords fraying when using them with SRAM Red?

Also can these be used with mini iLinks?

Thanks

I used to have Nokon + PCordz Liner + 1.5mm PCordz on full XTR 970 setup and it was flawless ... now I´m runnig Nokon with Nokon brake liner and 1.2mm PCordz and it seems to work a bit better... but maybe it´s just placebo :lol:

@Matt
While manufacturer contributions are great, I do feel that starting a thread to discuss your product strays into unsolicited advertising. I have not read the forum guidelines on this topic, but my sense is that people welcome manufacturer contributions in the following cases:

- When they respond to queries or comments from users which add to members' knowledge
- When they add new or interesting value added content not available elsewhere

If manufacturers want to run threads about their product or publicise updates, offers or new items (no bad thing) we should set up a manufacturers' sub forum and allow manufacturers willing to support the forum financially to make whatever announcements they choose there. If not, the alternative is for manufacturers to run their own forum off their web pages, with all the associated overheads and hassle that entails.

So coming back to the original topic, it would be great if we could see some pictures of your bike Matt, along with some close-ups of your Powercordz, or maybe some pictures explaining your production process and discussion of different colour options or something else which might be of interest to regulars here.

welcome btw!

I couldn't agree more! We want to add to "member knowledge". Spending time on the forums, I saw a lot of the same questions popping up and thought it might be helpful to have one place to answer questions. It doesn't seem like we need to advertise - people here seem familiar with Power Cordz. We're new on the forums, so if there is a better place for us to answer questions (like a sub-thread) let me know and we'll move there.

Where are the cables fraying? The more specific you can be the easier we can help.

In what way did they not work for you? If you let us know why they were a problem, we might be able to help.

I would like to have a convenient reference spot on how to tie the knot with ax lightness Orion/btp/power cordz. Pictures and step by step instructions would be awesome.

We're currently working on optimizing an install on ax lightness brakes. The uniqueness of the system requires extensive safety testing, which takes us time. We've seen a number of photos here on Weight Weenies of some interesting installs, and we appreciate the support!
