umd, i can admit when i'm incorect. 8 pages and so far so good.
Is the Nokon cable housing a worthwhile buy? You can re-use the alu pieces over and over right, just replace the liner?
Does 1 "kit" provide enough of to do both shift and brake cables?(I see they sell both shifting and brake sets now)

I had silver and it corroded in a season, but I've used red ones for 2 seasons now without any problems. I reuse the outers and liners, and just put new cables in.
Some other cables to consider are Yokozuna or however you spell that. I love mine and they seem to be lasting quite a while.
All my Nokons corrode. I have 4 or 5 sets of each (brake, der), have combined to get 3 bikes worth. I skip the steel coil housing under the tape on some (all? I forget) my bikes. Nokon kind of cheats and gives you a piece of steel coil housing for under the tape.
I think Nokons corrode once you scratch or chip the coating.
Another big-butt rider behind KOPS. I've experimented with moving my saddle up and forward, but I would never feel centered.

You should try racing with the guys and see what happens!
I have a wheel related question for those who are savvy with wheel repairs. Recently I keep popping a spoke in the rear in one particular section of my ride which fortunately is not far from home. The road is very well paved and smooth, it's a slight incline that bears right and I usually sprint up to keep the momentum going but when I get in the drops and sprint I hear the sound of a spoke popping. They are Williams System 19s which have been fine until recently where I've had to replace spokes 3 times in the past few months.

I like pie
My diagnosis: TOO MUCH POWAH!
I'm probably under the incorrect assumption that they would check the wheel for proper tension because it just makes sense to do. I'll specify that then and see how it goes because I've become hesitant using that wheel set because I don't want to pop a spoke and end up stranded.

I don't remember having any problems with the RD length. Was it the cable or the housing that was short for you? I have housing left over I think, but I don't remember if I had much cable left.
Jeez I leave for a week and we starting inviting them in?!
I'll admit it's a decent thread though.
