    Front end: Canti brakes + decaleur + brake cable hanger + front rack compatibility

    Do you all think I'll have any difficulty with this setup:

    Cable hanger
    Tektro Brake Cable hanger, frame mount

    +

    Nitto M12 front rack

    +

    Nitto ZAO decaleur mounted to a Technomic stem

    +

    Ostrich handlebar bag

    - - - - -

    I'd want to be able to use a fender too.

    I have the Tektro fork mounted hanger, the same one seen on the webpage link. The rack will interfere with the cable placement. Consider a rack that mounts directly to the fork legs, like this one: Amazon.com : Blackburn MTF-1 Front Bicycle Rack (Black) : Bike Panniers And Rack Trunks : Sports & Outdoors

    Another solution is to switch to V brakes, be sure to use the matching brake levers.
