Pleased to see I ma not the only one who hasn't quit using Venier calipers.I've had some more orders turn up.
Out of curiosity, I ordered some smooth ground Ali Gear cables. They're slightly under the claimed 1.2 mm diameter but definitely a smoother finish than Shimano cables when you run your finger nail along them, I tried a few different level Shimano cables for comparison too. I might add that the Shimano cables I had all measure around 1.5 mm in diameter too. Overall, they look fairly good.

Next were the III Pro rotors, the overall finish looks fairly good on them for a budget type rotor, and there's a bit of a warning on the packaging that I expect that they'll live up to. The back side of the rivets aren't all uniform, which might be a bit of a dodge, but I suppose time will tell.
