The Lizard cable housings are another version of the i-link stuff.
Run a Google search, you'll get a few hits.

thanks simonhanks.

yes as stoli said, those are aluminum compressionless housing similar to nokon. lizard is just another asian iteration of the nokons, along with o.t.a, i-links and srp (not the defunct us brand).
i prefer the look of the ota and lizard over the i-links as they look straight and dont bulge at the ends of each link.

(@ farm_lim) a few question about the saddle is it comfortable, width..?
wheels: are those kinlin holding up well, am trying to build up the same set.
Carbon wheels: i am also thinking to build a clincher set but i am afraid that they will crack on the building process do u know any good company that sells unbranded but good carbon clincher rims. i am 130 to 135 pounds and dont race; i just do high pace group riding. 8)

All i can say is BEAUTIFUL CANYON YOU HAVE THERE ! :D :up: :beerchug:

I see these lightweight saddles here and I just can't believe that it would be comfortable. Maybe for a short ride but when I am in the saddle for 6-7 hours I think of these saddles and I go numb. But this is the weightweenies forum after all so who cares if it hurts. its light!

thanks for the appreciation boys! havent posted recently.
bike is now no more, sold the frame and sr11 kit while i could still get better resale to prepare for the 2013 season. riding another bike now and will post it on another thread.

loco2546, unbrokenchain-
the speedneedles are comfortable enough for my use. i ride 3-4 hours/ 80-120km usually. i dont ride 6-7 hours. :wink: as with all saddles, shape for me is more important than padding, id find id fit a full carbon or lightly padded saddle than an arione which i dont fit well with the shape.
