Actually... more like this, now I come to think about it. http://harriscyclery.net/images/library/catalogs/soc/p350X350m/BR0471.jpg (close up: http://www.kurbelix.com/products/Fahrradteile/Bremsleitungset-Jagwire-Hyflow-Tefl-Kev-3000mm-Rose-Thon.html?cat=165481&?XTCsid=c81345f2a07f7b189775736cd59db9f5)

But in purple (well, violet) obviously. And, erm, for cables rather than hydraulics... :)

To me that looked like a braided pipe inside a clear plastic tube? Not seen 'em in the flesh though so no idea. :) But yes, that one is.... p.i.n.k. I'd prefer 3dv though ;)

The braided cables I've seen (not pink/violet/very light purple, call it what you want ;)) are your steel cable doing the job, some silver foil braided strands making it look pretty and a clear outer instead of black. It's just the for the look.

Will keep an eye out but everything 3DPink seems to be normal looking outers.

Cheers - maybe I'll call it 3DP... or may be I'll just go for black. :D

Bingo

That is Jagwire Ripcord "Rose Thorn" and it's a new colour for 2011 I think.

Ah ha! Nice one. :) Only managed to find it in hydraflow. Have to pop down the LBS I think and check the colour out in real life just to ensure it's not too 'violet' ;) Thanks for your help Fluffy (and everyone else.) :)
