    Anyone using the Alligator Mini i-Links for their Mojo?

    If so, I would love to hear your impressions. Or another recommendation of a light, reliable shift cable set. I would go w/ the Shimano SP81 Yumeya, first choice, but, I'm not into White cables on my Matte Clear SL. Black cables please.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    I'm using them on mine. I like the looks and the full length liner to keep dirt out. Only complaint I have, is they make noise when I turn the bars. Nothing major, and I usually don't hear it while riding. It's more noticeable while I'm loading or unloading the bike, or doing maintenance on it.

    Edit: I'm using the original i-links, not the Mini

    I didn't think these were available yet, where did you find them & how much.

    Thanks übermensch. What kind of noise do the iLinks make? Crunching? If you had to choose again, would you choose a different set of cables?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    I have been using the iLinks for several years, I have found that they tend to create ghost shifting for me, going to switch to some Gore Ride On's tonight for a change (testing/reviewing them), they are light!

    Crunching, creaking, cracking type of noise as the aluminum pieces move and flex against each other. Like I said though, I don't really notice it as I'm riding-too many other sounds going on. And it's not enough of a distraction to make me want to change.

    If I had to choose again, I would still go with the i-links. Possibly some Gore Ride On cables if they offered them in blue.

    Thanks Gram! Have you tried the Shimano SP81 Yumeya derailleur cables? Love everything except the color of the cable....White!!! I'll scratch the iLinks off my list. Thanks again,

    Kevin
