    cable to cable connectors? (The problem of frequet swapping of tri and road bars)

    Hey all, has anyone heard of a device that would let me connect and disconnect gear and brake cables? What i'm trying to do is use a dedicated tribar setup and a dedicated roadbar setup on the same bike. However when I want to swap between the two, I need to take all the gear and brake cables out. If I do this often, then I may as well not bother crimping the cables, and I'll get through cables quickly as they'll fray. So if there was some kind of connector that linked the bar cables with the rest of the cable that went to the shifters, that would be excellent. Anyone have any ideas how to tackle this?

    Thanks for any ideas,

    Simon

    What is it called, or listed under on those pages? I couldn't find it, and I need them too!

    They are called cable connectors for folding bikes. They are under the Cables/Casing tab of the Loose Screws website.
