    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.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
