    Help! - White or Orange cable housing for Orange 907

    with Black 907 fork??? Friend thinks white for contrast with white 9Zero7 logo while I'm leaning Orange to blend in with frame and then contrast with black fork out front. Thanks,

    I think I would pick white. The orange cables might be in a different shade of orange compared to your orange 907. Good luck on your 907 build.

    Yup, white. Not all oranges are the same shade.

    Jagwire makes brake and derailer housing in colors, both white and orange are available.

    Amazon.com: Jagwire Racer DIY Brake and Derailleur K: Sports & Outdoors These are cable/housing kits, but it lists/shows all the colors.

    There is also colored brake hose available from goodridge.

    I'd vote for white as well. Not only is a contrast color better than a near-match, but white doesn't sun fade as bad. I was thinking about some red housing (for a black bike), but then I thought about fade-to-pink...... still thinking.

    For my Orange 907 that's on order. I am going with black cable housings but white is interesting. I think the orange housings are a brighter version than the paint so Im staying away from that. Doing a black and mango Chris King headset and the 45NRTH tires. Orange nipples would be sweet as well, but can't find them.
