These seem neat...

I just read about these in BRAIN, so I looked them up. Kind of a neat concept..

Synthetic Cables, lighter then steel, and alledgedly no cable stretch. That alone makes them better then swapping to Electric!

I've been using them for about eight months now. The only problem I've encountered is that the brake cable does not fit into a Campy lever very well so I have shift cables there too. A little care is required to set them up and they are expensive, about four times as much as regular cables. So far no discernable stretch. When they do require changing I will get them again.
