    what is going on with Gore?

    Interbike 2011- Gore announces new ultra light sealed cables to be available by end of year.
    fast forward to first week of January, sent Gore number of emails and voice mails asking about release date - not a single answer.
    I sent single email to QBP and with 12hour was informed that cables can be purchased after January 20th. On January 23rd LBS tried to place order and now date is after February 20th.
    Today, LBS checked status of these cable and now it is sometimes in March/April. WTF.

    Gore seam to have a good customer services, I email them about a year ago, never get an answer.

    Went to buy Transfil cable. About half price totally seal just like gore, lightweight housing. Impecable shifting. I will never buy gore again. can't accept the fack they ignore customer.

    Really sad chain reaction doesn't sell them anymore But! I found some here:

    Wiggle | Transfil Flying Snake Brake Cable Set Brake Cables
    Kit frein transfil vtt/route - kevlar - Boutique vélo Distri Cycle
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Transfil-Fly.../dp/B001CVWQC6

    there must be other places where you can buy them cheaper if you search.

    have fun.

    Are you after the 'Fiberoptic' system, I heard about them around interbike last year and have been patiently waiting for them to appear in real life but heard nothing.
