Maybe as small as 2mm for the OTO/ZH bike... which would also work for the 1/5 scale if you are using fishing leader wire 40lb test or less

i have my OTO here with me at work, but no calipers....

This all sounds like dejavu to me, been down this road before.. lol

That was me that used to make/supply the Sadi thread cables for Pat all that time ago. For the 1/8 bikes I used 1 layer of heat shrink and 2 layers for the 1/5 bikes. In the end, the place I was getting it from went out of business so I ended up sourcing a local Spring and Steel company to make me the outer cable to the dimentions I wanted,.. they did me lengths by the meter; 0.4mm stainless with 2.5mm OD x 2mm ID and I used 40 - 60lb leader wire from the local fishing tackle store.. Now Pat gets his cables made the same way I think.
