Has anyone tried the new Ti cables from KCNC? These are available from Fairwheel (http://fairwheelbikes.com/kcnc-titanium ... -5506.html). I wonder if they are too stretchy.

I've bought a set but haven't put them on yet. I'll try to remember to post my impressions when I do.

I would expect them to stretch initially after setup, like steel cables, but no more issues after the initial break-in period. There's no reason not to buy them, especially given the weight advantage over steel cables.

+1 to what mythical said.
I have the KCNC cables, and they are one of the better products in the sea of gimmicks that Cycling has become.
Ti is a perfect material for cables.

Of course, everything can be improved, and it'd be great if they could have an even better slickcoat.

Doesn't ti fatigue more easily than stainless? If it does, then I wouldn't want to use it for my shift cables. I already have to replace my rear shift cable every 3000 to 4000 miles, and I know I couldn't afford new ti cables at that rate.

I have been using them for the brakes with Fibula brakes and so far it has been good....not to fond on the gold finish but it only shows a bit They weight half what a regular SS cable weight.
