Which side of the head tube do you run your brake cable? I get new bikes in with some on the left and others on the right. I like it run on the right. If the cable is long enough to spin the bars, it keeps it tuck in a little.
I've felt that it always looks better to have it on the left side of the headtube if the lever is on the right side of the bars, but (because of the way I spin the bars, and because I like shorter cables), it worked better to have it on the right.
I had my break cables run through the main tube of the bike. Then put it directly into the middle portion of the back tire.
I have been doing this since I got my first bike probably 8-10 years ago. I find this set up very cool cause the cable does not look messy compared to either left or right.
Right side. That's the side the cable goes into my V brakes.
