    Thanks.
    seems like it's a 108mm and there is 113 and 118 available.

    I hope they make it to production, but I'm afraid if it does, someone from slowtwitch will buy one take it to A1 (wind tunnel) and then rip on them about the results!

    Did they change nothing else?

    I had a problem a while back where purely time and cable tension started to pull the outer shift housing wires through the cheap end ferrule, something to check for.

    Look on Amazon,
    I got a 29 single to go at the top, a 16 single and a 13 that was suitable for use as the lowest, they were only 3-4$ each and between them have given me quite some options.
