    STI - handlebarbacks

    Hi

    I try to find a way to make space for a handlebarback.

    From the picture you can see something special - I havenīt seen it before, the connector put on the wires.
    How can I appart it? and is that a way to mount a 45-90 degree angleconnector?

    I have seen a beautiful way to solve the problem: Nokon housing. But itīs expensive too

    Greetings

    I think that he means handlebar bag.

    There are bags that use a bracket that spaces the bag off of the front of the handlebar. Besides making room for your shift cables, that'll also help keep your brake cable from wearing the bag.

    Hi friends,

    Yes ofcource itīs a handlebar bag - sorry, english is not my mother tongue ;-)

    Retro Grouch,
    I have tried but it still conflict with the cables in an unacceptable way.

    Hi again

    One of the ways to handle the problem is using the shown elbow, but if you over there have an elbow in the same system as shown above on the bike, I think it would be a bit easier - or?
