Do Shimano's claimed weights for STI shift/brake levers include the inner cables? Should I assume that weights listed on the Weight Weenies site are with inner cables (unless otherwise stated)?
The reason I ask is that I just got my new Alpine scale from Feedback Sports, so I can finally weigh my whole bike. The Alpine reports a weight slightly lower than my calculated weight, so I'm casting about for the reason.
The only parts on my bike that I haven't weighed individually are the Deore LX STI units, the shift cables, and the frame. The frame weight is based on the manufacturer's claim (dicey, I know, but I don't cherish the idea of completely stripping my bike just to get an exact frame weight). I based the STI weight on a listing in the weight weenies site that does not specify that it does or does not include the inner cables.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
