Does anyone know if coloured Shimano EW-Sd50 cables are available? I was looking to run red brake cables on my frame and was hoping to match it with some red DI2 cables
cheers!

I believe they are made Model-T style. You can have any color you want as long as the color you want is black.

I have never seen or heard of them in any other colors.

How about putting heat shrink tubing over the Di2 cables? It's available in a lot of colours.

Shrink wrapping is the way to go. A hobby-shop heat gun is an excellent accessory if you plan to try this, because the oft-suggested hair dryer doesn't shrink the tubes quickly, completely, or uniformly enough.
