Anyone want to go halfies with me?

I know this is a long shot, but I'm ordering some merida team green, and maxxis orange housings. They only come in kits. I only need one of the housings. Anyone want to go in half with me and I'll send you the second housing, and all the extra stuff.*ferrules.. blah blah*

Anyone doing a funky build where they could use em?

Road bike and mtb compatible.

If it were dark green housing, I'd jump on it.

While Nu&Blu's owner loves neon bright colors (hence the trademark funky socks), Nu&Blu likes stuff that's well ... blue.

Dang. No one wants to ruin one of their bikes? I know the average # of bikes per owner on this forum is like 4. You can spare one!

What do you want another color for then? Just trying to clash colors? You could well make a nice "hideously charming commuter bike" too.

Kt, KT, KT. *shakes head*

Haven't you been paying attention? All my cable housings are different colors. I want to switch the white and blue for orange and lime green.

Oh and I'm going for Hideously beautiful rainbow love road bike. So we can be... uhh.. distant cousins!

I'm doing all this now, and also switching out cables, and getting the proper barrel adjustors, so once and for all I can have hank and franks adjust everything.

Hmmm......I could use a q-tip for finer line tracing and do that now with the remaining paint.

Meh. It was worth a try. Now it's going to cost 40$ for me to get 2 small pieces of housing. They only offer these colors in kits. Idiots at jagwire. Not that I could ask, since they don't respond to customer emails.

Well, as a friend from college once said: "If you're gonna be dumb, ya gotta be tough."









I think my work is done here.

Okay wait. Why the eff do you go and get MAXXIS ORANGE housings? You didn't even say anything about orange housings by MAXXIS. You said every color but orange.

Funny how it was after I just told you I was getting orange striped MAXXIS tires for the Caldera.....

They aren't by maxxis Siu. It's Maxxis orange, that's the color. By Jagwire. I could skip out on the orange, but I really want the lime green. The white housing on my bike is too plain.

No, but I do want to know where you order all of these wonderful colors from. All the places I am used to dealing with just have the standard black basically.

Yes, you need some color in your life.


I'm getting another used/inexpensive mtb to use for my winter commute and messing around in the snow (spent too much money this past year on the <sniff> stolen bike - to replace brakes/rebuild wheel due to my punishment and the snow/slush).

Would be interesting to make it more like "me" - colorful
