This housing suffers badly due to the liner construction. The liner ha strong cohesion to itself, and poor adhesion to the outer housing. This has two important consequences: 1) After cutting to length, it can be VERY difficult to "open" the pinched liner. I've done this many hundreds of times with other housing, and this is the first time I've had a challenge. We're talking 5+ minutes with a dental pick after each cut!! 2) If you ever pull the cable, you'll likely have problems. I pulled the rear cable because a derailleur change necessitated a new cable length. But when pulling the cable, the liner somehow bunched up and was pulled inside the housing, rendering both the housing and the cable useless. Had to start over with all new housing.
