I am looking for brake cables, more specifically the outer casing which are more flexible?
The outer casing has to go through the top tube....

Got myself a rim brake F12 and was trying out mechanical. The shifting part seems ok, the in-frame barrel adjuster works surprisingly well but the campy brake cable got a beating from the plastic aero stem adapter.
Photos and build to come later.

I was using Campagnolo Ultra Shift and Brake cables, not the Maximum Smoothness 12 speed version.

Any suggestiong?
