Is it possible to use the powercordz prime with the new ultra light gore ride-on. The ride-on is only 20g/m, while the powercordz housing is 49g/m. The two together could be perfect.

I thought iLinks shift housing was about 18gms/meter.

I could be wrong.

I spoke with madcow and he gave the weights per meter and I don't have them anymore, my wife threw the list away.
I need to keep track of things better. :roll:

Maybe he can let us know. "paging madcow".....................

I assume you are talking about SHIFT HOUSING only?

On the Gore website it appears the ultra light cable is for shift housing only, correct? (sorry if I am a little slow on th uptake)

Gum,

I found my list that madcow gave me. (my wife didn't through it out, after all :D )

This is what he (madcow) said:

(weights by meter)
mini iLinks --18.8gm
iLinks --31.7gm
gore --19.1gm (I forget which one that is for)
Shimano (4mm) --33.2gm
campy brake --53gm
Campy shift --38(ish)gm

Hope that helps.

True.

I guess then you just plug in what is the lightest cord and liner. I can't imagine liners being that different.
So I imagine the next descision is cord, what lightest. (iLinks, wire, power cords). I thought power cords were the lightest, nut I am not as knowledgeable, on this.

I hope someone who has facts can inform us.

Seems like it's just you and me on this thread. :)

I emailed Gore and they said not to use powercordz With their product but I think I remember people were using the two together. I think the lighest would be A combination of the iLink minis for the derailleurs and Brakes and powercordz. I still think its the lightest combination. :noidea:

If I remember correctly, someone on here was using ilinks minis and 1.2mm powercordz throughout; brakes and shifters. That would have to be the lightest. Whether its safe or not is another question. I assume that's with the standard ilinks liner too.

I've used the Mini I-links with 1.2mm powercordz with no issues.

I've been using mini ilinks and 1.2 mm powercordz for my rear brake fro a long time now with no problems. I take 1 regular i link and glue it to the top of the cord so it doesn't pull through the brake lever.

Do you use a liner with the powercordz? Did you have to ream out the mini's?

I also just use the liner from the mini I links.

I set my whole bike up with normal steel cables using just what comes with the mini I-links, and after I got it shifting right, I took them out and put the mini I-Links in.
