hey, guess what? it all worked!
pcordz with i-links / mini i-links.. did by my mechanic, I gave up trying that myself, itd be my first time mounting any cables at all, not exactly the perfect combo to start with by what I read here..
it felt precise and responsive to me over a short, plain test ride, yet I tested shifting more than braking. honestly, I need a lot more km with it for a serious review, and even then.. red group is new, so still very harsh, and all components and brand are new to me. so I should limit myself to saying it works!
edit: it even looked nice, the yellow pcordz matching the yellow brake pads! I thought it´d look all yellow cables through the downtube, but "white" liners are there . I dont mean to be precise here, but the combo might have saved about 70 gr over the previous yokozuna cabling set
