    They look interesting. I will have to try them when I install my Tune housings I got from nino. You could not get much lighter than that!

    Cheers,

    I've been wondering when someone was going....

    ...to come up with something like this. I had always thought it would be 600- 800 lb shielded spectra line -- even considered trying it myself.

    Same here, I was thinking about spectra ... well the weight savings of a V-brake keep increasing ... With nino's Tune casing and these babies ... I already put myself on themailing list for the product release

    What the hell are they attaching the cable to here? Helical clasp?

    So how much does that helical clasp weigh?

    And how much of the reported weight saving does it negate?

    I been using them power cordz

    Hello all,

    Glad to hear all of your comments on the Power cordz,
    I had worked with some good people for the past several years to develope the cordz for all you good people to ride and enjoy.

    We are working with a couple of top us racing teams whom have tested and asked to use them for the 2005 season. We are getting positive feedback relating to the cordz sucess with the prodcut in heavy rain conditions and the added life to the whole braking and shifting system because of the lower forces on the housing, thus keeping the system in tune.

    The Helic clasp weight about 3 grams apiece and is still in finial development stages. The Power cordz work with out the clasp where you clamp directilly onto the cordz which can be seen in the instualtion page of the Powercordz.com

    Cheers, Tony DuPont
