Am thinking about replacing the stock Shimano brake cables to drop a few more grams. What are your opinions about the aesthetics of mixing the ferrule housing brake cables with the stock electronic shifting Di2 cables? The shifting cables run mostly internal on the Parlee Z5 SLi, except of course for the shorts runs from the handlebars to the downtube, and out the chainstay to the RD. Am I missing something here?

The gallery for that one is not yet published. It will premiere on Pez Cycling and after that we'll get some more pictures posted.

Used the AiCAN system on a di2 venge.
Looks shit hot and works great.
I've got em on my 5.3kg parlee z5. The low friction shift housings are actually better than std campag cables and that's a pretty big call. The shifting on my bike is amazing! And the whole system is around 80gs installed
