you won't regret it - I've had mine (both brake and shift) for almost five years. The only time I've replaced the cables was when I was in an accident, and when I switched over to my new frame. They last forever, as does their performance, and getting the perfect length housing is not irreversible. :thumbup:

I just became a firm believer in the link style cable housing. I tried out the new offering from Jagwire and absolutely love it. Aesthetics wise I think it looks the best and super easy to work with. After doing both the shifting and brakes on one bike I had enough links and liner left over to do shifting on another bike!

Segemented cables work like shit with Shimano 11 in my experience. I've yet to see a single set that has as little drag as genuine Campy/Shimano housing. I do like it for brakes though, especially Nokon housing. I might try the Jagwire housing for my brakes next.

Getting some wider shoes to replace my Ergo2. Shimano R260

Had 1999 Shimano XC shoes their top of the line ones. It will be interesting to see the difference.

I've heard of people having issues with Shimano Ultegra 11sp to be exact but I'm running Sram 10spd with no issues.

What's the real weight on those bars?


They arrived yesterday. Advertised weight was 210gm, mine came in for a 40cm c-c at 194gm. So pretty pleased with that.

That's because its hard to get Sram on par with Shimano or Campy no matter what you do!

I kid, but I think with Sram its less of an issue because of the generally high cable tension and pull ratio of the shifters. With Super Record I found that it wasn't as bad as it was with Shimano, but the rear wasn't quite as crisp as with Campy cables.

My biggest complaint with the non-fully sealed systems is that the liners invariably get shit in them and lose performance over time in wet weather. I don't have the same issue with normal cables with either Shimano or Campy. It seems that only Sram sponsored riders run segmented housing in the Pro Peloton so there is probably a good chance that they just work better with that brand.

@dereksmalls - is that bar equivalent to the FSA compact?

Yeah it seems to be. I'm running the FSA Wing Pro Compact in aluminium already on all my CX bikes and it is the exact same shape, which is perfect for as I'm fairly small with shortish arms and I like flat tops instead of a rounded top to rest my hands on. So I only drop about 40ish grams in switching to this but hey it only cost me $60US inc postage off ebay in the end at auction. To be honest the Ergonova copy is a steal at $80 to buy from them and that is advertised at 190gm, so I would guess it would end up lighter possibly.

oh screw you for introducing me to that Parlee Flickr page...

Now (after losing an hour of my night) I am so close to stripping my Z5sl and sending her in for some make-up. What sucks is that I will now be obsessing for days coming up with designs / mocks / renderings to likely do nothing...

thanks a lot... :beerchug:
