This housing is STIFF! Comes with great cables and end caps but it is tough to make tight bends due to the housing's inflexibilty. It is very high quality but it is tough to install. I usually cut the housing with normal bike housing cutters, and then take an awl and reshape the housing to make it round. Something I saw in an Mountain Bike Action Mag one time.
This cable housing is really tough, if you can manage to install it! Nearly impossible to get a clean cut. Regular cable housing cutter crushes it. You can cut it with a Dremel, but then the outer jacket and Kevlar fibers prevent installation of the end caps without bunching up. I'm quite good with my hands, but I've spent many hours getting a few cuts clean enough to get the ends caps on! If you can get it installed it is good stuff! I'm replacing an earlier version of Alligator cable which was much easier to install.
