Disclaimer: did a search and checked Sheldon's site but didn't find what I was looking for. Also looked at a number of PDF files from the Tektro and Shimano sites.
I currently have a stock Bianchi Volpe appointed with Tiagra shifter/brakes on top of the hoods. I'd like to add some cross levers to this setup but am wondering how the cabling will be done. Does anyone have a tutorial on how to set this up correctly?
I haven't purchased any parts yet but am doing some install research before I dive into this project. I had a few questions that I would love to have answered?
Are the hood shifter and cross shifter cables connected in any way?
Should I just run two sets of cables to my cantilevers?
Are there any special kits that I haven't seen that accomodate both types of handlebar brake levers?
Now I'm not a mechanic, but it seems that all I need to do is attach the cross cable somewhere down the line of the hood cable....but then again I could be completely wrong. If anyone has suggestions on how to get this done, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
