Purchased the "Racer Complete Cable Kit" w/DR & Brake cables for my Raleigh.
The brake cables utilize an initial outer jacket section comprised of 6" section of "EZ Bend" housing, followed by the typical colored / stiff housing section. The directions say to TAPE that EZ bend portion to the handlebar.
1. Do I need to tape it down? If so, over or under the customary handlebar tape I have yet to apply / change?
2. Rather than use the "EZ Bend" section (for a more original / conventional cable look) can I simply cut that beginning covering section off and run the cables "normally"?
3. It also appears that the cable lever opening is too big for the cable ends provided in the kit and that I'd have to use the old / stock larger cable end for proper fitment?
How have any of you fitted the Jagwire's to your Road bike?
