Nice. How much lighter are they compared to regular XTR cables?
sorry D8 - these weights are not possible!DeeEight said:The 3.5mm housing is about 30% lighter than the standard 4.0mm housing (shimano SP41). We've got several rolls of the stuff at the store i wrench at, and its been there for at least a year. Nobody is sure where exactly we got it, but its definitely available in canada at least. On pieces long enough to do I think it was the rear derailleur loop, I got 13g for the 4.0mm SP41 and 10g for the unknown label 3.5mm housing.
oh-sorry!DeeEight said:Nino, Are you naturally this stupid or do you have to deliberately practice being it daily or something? Or is it just your natural tendency to attack any info that might hurt your sales. Afterall, who's gonna order your crap that's finicky to setup and keep working properly if there's already cheap and stiff 3.5mm housing available on the market which is good enough for XTR/DuraAce equipped bikes.
I said... it was 10g for a length to do the REAR DERAILLEUR LOOP section of housing... which unless you're using one uninterrupted piece of housing from the middle of a suspension frame to the rear derailleur (as I do on my Amp B-3), there is no way in hell you'll ever need to use 1 meter of the stuff in that spot.
i just thought how much it weighs per meter?snowdrifter said:blah blah..
Good post...thanks Nino :thumbsup:nino said:i just thought how much it weighs per meter?
The other yumeya stuff really is expensive, but those housings are the same price as iLink, or a bit cheaper... shimano can be purchased at 38€ for 2m, iLink is the same price for 1,8m. If you consider the hassle of fine tuning the iLink, dirt getting into the links, premature rubbing etc, shimano gets the podium here...nino said:This Yumeya stuff is cool but the pricing is simply insane. .
