I invested in 2 bikes worth of IRD aluminum cable housing a few years
ago. I have since been completely satisfied with every aspect of its
performance. The 2 minor problems I am having are that I can't find a
source for the replacement lining and some of the ferrules. The second
problem is that the ferrules are corroding from my sweat. Both cables
are under the bar tape and I ride in temps of frequent 100 + degrees. I
want to look in to anodizing and I want to know what happened with IRD
since they no longer sell these cables. I know Nokon sells anadized
versions but I am not sure if the outside diameter of the Nokon liners
will work w IRD ferrules.

TIA

I don't remember the company name, but a company stop selling the housing
due infringment on the patent of Nokon.
