i recently installed an iLink brake cable set but didn't weigh it prior.
Any else here weigh them prior to installing them?

cheers

Somewhere between 100-120g depending on bike size. If you are using mini for shift that is. 20-30g more with regular iLink for shifting

The outer is 26.5g per meter approx and the liner 1.4g per meter. Then add a few grams for any ferrules.
