Strengths:    Look neat.

Weaknesses:    Time consuming install.
Break-in period too long.
Shifting performance is poor.
Stick with normal cables and housing combination.

Bottom Line:   
From the start these cables are difficult to work with. The installation a pain. The house comes in one length requiring at least four seperate cuts. It took too long for the cables to stretch (it's still stretching after 500 miles of riding). Shifting performance is poor.
