    Yokozuna Brake Housing with Cross Levers?

    I am thinking about running some compressionless brake housing such as Yokozuna on my cross bike to see if I can eek out a bit more power from my canti's. I've heard that the Yokozuna brake housing is real stiff and difficult to bend. Anyone know if it would be too stiff to run with inline 'cross levers (aka "chicken levers")? I know...I should ditch the inline brake levers...but I can't...have gotten to used to them.

    I use Yokozuna for most of my builds. I've never really noticed the 5 mm brake housing being much stiffer than others. I don't think you will have a problem.
