    Do STI weights include inner cables?

    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.

    I'd assume the weight is with the inner cable unless detail is provided to the contrary.
