Nokon 33g/m , Alligator 27g/m...

...or maybe my favourite Shimano SIS? 33g/m while costing ~1$/560mm. Yep, it's not sealed as well as two above neither made of shiny-bling-bling aluminium.

Cheers

i had ALLIGATOR I-LINK gold on my previous scalpel ...

but mine , when applied force to shifting, are subject to carve ...

and very noisy ....

so I-LINK will not be consider in my choice
sorry - what is carve?
and there is absolutely no noise as well. you must have installed them in a strange manner. the only noise i could imagine is at the cablestops in the frame. the endcaps are aluminium so when you turn the handlebar it might make some noise if you have sand or dirt in your stops. other than that there is absolutely no noise.

Nokon carbons are ca. 35g/m...but for sure a lot of blingbling;)

i'm talking about alu I-link , as your picture

in gold color




when installed , and is no possible to make mistake , was as a possible paly from each section...

and no stable in its position: when i asked for a shifting , i could see an important change of position ... i added other sections, i subtract ... i did many changes to reach a normal situation as stock housing ...
