Won an unbuilt 2014 Felt AR frame for cheap ($800) on ebay...realized it's electronic only. There goes my plan to keep it cheap.

Funny I was thinkin that too, so fast. Kestrel with no SP another 90s tri icon.

As an iro owner, was quite surprised there.

I think if it was a bike for my riding, it would be the Merlin,tho that's a late-ish one.

just spent £30 on a park tools cable cutter and it's made just about a ham-fisted shitty job as the random blunt tools i tried previously.

man, that's terrible. i wonder what changed, i've had one for cables, and one for housing, each for like 20+ years, they have always worked perfectly? The housing cutter is so strong I have misused it to cut spokes (not recommended for rim health or long-term cutter health. also can be dangerous to eye health if you have no rim strip).

Do you have to file the housing after cutting? It's so tough I find it hard to imagine you wouldn't but I had high hopes, maybe too high?

I mean it looks so mashed I think I'll be filing for hours.

spiral brake housing, or shifter housing? Yeah the soft spiral stuff tends to mash down a bit if I don't manipulate the cutting process a bit (I sort of bend the housing back, away from the core as I cut. But mine never mashes or messes up that tough shifter stuff. Boom, right through.

Brake housing. I've got plenty to play with so I'll give that a go, ta. I see the park tools website does say some filing will be necessary.
