Travel Agents

Hi all,

I need some travel agents for my disc brakes and was wondering if I had to get the inline version or if there is any problem with me using the right angled version at the point where the cable leaves the bar tape?

Thanks

Daven

I'm thinking that you might be able to cobbel it together and get it to work. I'm also wondering why you wouldn't just use the product that's designed for your application.

Or get some disc brakes (Avid Road models) that match your brake levers and sell the ones you currently have. Oh, wait, the Avid Road disc brakes only come in silver. Forget it then, you obviously care more about style than function.

No, I would get the road brakes but they would cost 120. I just thought that the 90 degree one would work the same. If not then I will get the inline ones.
