I restored a 1981 ALAN and since the frame was all silver I wanted to go with all silver components. The silver braided cable looks great!
Metallic Braid Brake Cable Kits
I put these on and braking performance suffered. I attempted a slight bend and moved the cable inner back and forth and noticed a large amount of friction. I then replaced it with Jagwire cables with the same bend and the smoothness was like night and day.
I was surprised how thick the housing was. Really nice to work with (installation) and is perfect with some of the complex routings I have. The cables love it too - much more responsive shifting and braking action. Only down side is that now I have to order another set for my other bike so it too will look as good (and work as well)!
