I've used Avid Flakjackets, which are a similar braided idea. Nice feel with the brakes, but no huge difference on the gears. Heavier in action to Goretex cables.

I've got the old silver Hope braided hose on my XC4's, its starting to look old now, will probably fit some normal black hose.
For bling cables, you want the Nokon system, stupidly expensive, ages to fit and creaks like a b@st@rd on a Klein Palomino :evil:
