It's probably different every time you put the pump head on the valve. I'll bet you never do it exactly the same twice. Does it matter? Not a bit. Are you overthinking this? Definitely.

I don't think it's worth on expensive bikes let alone cheap bikes. Using normal Shimano or SRAM cables/housing, installing it correctly and replacing them in a timely fashion are more important.

I will say that $35.00 labor to install a chain is by FAR the most I've ever seen. The shop I'm at is in one of the most expensive counties to live in the country, we charge $15.00 for the labor.
