Dura Ace polymer brake inners with SLR housing. Jagwire is the only shift housing I have on hand, so that's what I use for the RD loop. SRAM SlickWire for the RD shift inner.

My bikes range from 74mm to 65mm of drop (65mm one has 27" wheels and 170 cranks). Lots of clearance. Cornering with power input gets sketchy before I drag a pedal. Bit tippy though.
