Hey guys and girls!

Right now I'm installing the Prime system from Powercordz. And I'm tweeting about the installation. Are you curious? Follow the installation live. :thumbup:

After the installation I will make a write up that I will post in this thread over the weekend.

Thanks!

Frankie, these blue "things" are for mounting the cable into derl.

I meant the small blue donuts. The other blue/white ish tubes are for feedin the cable into the derailleur you say? seems like the cable would slip though it once the pinch bolt gets tightened. right?

Looking forward to your review, installation (the cables mainly), but mostly performance (and weight of course)... :thumbup:

I liked your Alligator Ilink review and installation tutorial a while ago. Make shure you give us a comparison between the two "light" options, and maybe other popular ones.

Louis :)

Bumping for the non-twitter inclined.

My installation hasn't gone so well with my ruegamer. My bike shop just called and said they took my bike out for the first ride and the rear derailleur powercord is already starting to fray. Apparently there is a sharper bend in my frame and it caused the cord to fray. He called DuPont/powercordz and I think they are going to send out something but everything is delayed. Also the brakes I bought off a fellow forum member 'StuTheWeek' were broke so I have to have the front brake replaced. Nice. :evil:

Sorry, just needed to re-quote that part.

Costing me an additional $150 to replace the broken parts.

Gum, you should have known better. It sucks, but you knew who you were buying from.

What do you mean? I don't know anything about this person. I just thought he was a fellow weightweenie.

I can say my PowerCordz Prime experience has been painful. It sounds like it may have been related to a wrong mix of cables and liners. The company is working with me to try and resolve it.

I have tried several different cable/housing combinations over the years. Yokozuna cables are still the best I have used. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Not sure I would move away from something that is reasonably priced and that I know will work and work very well.
