I had them on one of my bikes and never liked them. They look fine at first, but soon fall out of shape. At least that was my experience.

I doubt I'll be using them in future - sick of them creaking and rattling. I'll stick with the DA Cables from now on

Nothing wrong with them if installed and lubed properly, last for ages. They are time consuming though.

For gear cables shimano SIS is lighter, cheaper and works better!

For brakes look at Aligators

whatever happened with the carbon nokons? Those looked promising.

Yea, I was going to asked about the carbon versions too. They used to show up on starbike with an expected date of sept 17. Now they no longer appear.

Guess still not ready for prime time and may never be.

This is the only reason why I would use the nokon housings.

That is probably the best excuse for nokons I've ever seen, I wonder if it shifts as smooth as normally? Shimano cable routing is one of the reasons I have two SRAM bikes.

My silver nokons have corroded after one season. They looked great for about three months. Back to DA.

I'm keeping the beads for odd cable routing on an MTB.

Good luck.

Regards

Alan

you ride da shifters for the comfortebel hood and secure shifting
the design of the cable routing is a part of the fine shifting
meaning a cable that runs as straight as possible

if u want light cables in terms of weight and shifting try to get gore cables
otherwise get powercordz wich are all black inner cables
gore has colour options and a better self sealing system
dont know if gore cables are still made
both brands come in brake cables as well

when nokon cables loose their round shape they look awfull
they are exspensive to

I've had my Nokons set up for almost a year. Black in color. The black does rub off in spots although its nothing that a black sharpie can't fix. They have worked very will with the Power Cordz liner and cables on a Campy drive train. The shifting and braking have performed very "Campy like"!
