    Cable & Housing Weight

    I'm about to build a 1x10 hardtail with cable operated discs. The rear brake and derailleur don't use full housing. How much do you think the cables and housing will weigh?

    Re: Cable & Housing Weight

    250-400 grams depending on how much housing your frame requires.
    Based on my jagwire cables out of box.

    I'm interested in Power Cords cuz I've snapped a lot of cables with Shadow+ derailleurs.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Bummer, for now I'm using a little plastic sleeve to shield the cable. Shimano will soon release an updated Shadow+ to deal with the cable problems.
