    Ok, I'm ordering XTR levers because thee LX shit things are hindering my learning. So it says the XTR levers comes with cables and housing, is that the stiff XTR shit or some crappy Shimano SIS? I didnt want to order the XTR housing/cable set if it already came with it.

    Yes it does come with "xtr" cable set.Though it says xtr I really doubt it's much better than the stuff that says SIS.I'm scrapping it and using IRD
    metawire, metal link housing.BLING!

    Another good way to improve your cables is to use inner cables which have been,for lack of a better word,soldered. I believe dia compe may make them.Basically all the strands have been somehow bonded together ,greatly decreasing inner cable stretch.
