A couple of questions for a bike build
I'm a little confused as to how to continue with a few things, so please help!
1) I'm building up a Spicer track frame. It uses a one inch threadless fork, and I've pretty much got it all on, except I'm not sure which way the shim for the Nashbar stem I bought goes on. It's shaped like a T and I'm confused as to which side the flattened part should face? The Top or the bottom of the stem?
2) What's the best way to route a brake cable on a TT bar? FYI: the cable runs on the exterior, in the interior.
3) I have a Shimano 105 dual pivot brake, and I'm stumped as to how to properly install it. What's throwing me off is that "quick release lever" thingy-ma-jiggy.
I apologize if my questions sound a bit silly. But I want to be sure I do this right. Thank you.
