Question: No BC-9000 brake cables included with the shifters, and I can't find them in the UK at all. What would you recommend to use for the initial build (and would it be worth switching once the 9000 cables are available)?

Can you stick them on a scale and post results?
Haven't got a scale unfortunately.
Mine have arrived too and I do have some scales. I'll post the results later.
828g for the front, 1003g for the rear out of the box. So 1831g for the set. Shimano stated weight for the set is 1672g so these are 9.5% over.
This set is gonna have to go back though. When rotating the front wheel, I can hear loose material rattling around the inside of the front rim. I managed to shake some out from the valve holes but can't get all of it.
note that i removed the stock rim tape and replaced them with a single layer of stan's yellow tape. Original weight is what's pictured + 10 grams per wheel.
Tried the yellow tape as a longshot experiment, worked out great!
(1 layer stan's tape = 5 grams per wheel ; Orig Shimano Tape = 15 grams each)

That's more like 1710g. Shimano advertises weight for the wheels sans tape. Yep, still overweight.
Once again Shimano demonstrates its inability to work carbon.
