Suntour Command Shifters Installation Questions
I managed to win some old Suntour 7-speed Command shifters on Ebay however I am not sure how exactly they are supposed to be installed (one of those, D'oh! moments that us old bikers are prone to). These are the shifters with the assymetric "wingnut" (one long and one short side). They also have a mounting bracket that makes them stick out from the brake lever. Two questions:
Which lever is up, the long or the short? (the short seems to make more sense because the long lever would be somewhat of an impaling hazard)
Does the cable exit the front or back? (it looks like the cable could be routed under the bar tape if it exits to the back)
These levers have always interested me and they are going to be installed on my trusty Bianchi Volpe all-arounder bike.
Thanks in advance for any help.
