Cygolite mounting- cable in the way
I have a Cygolite MityCross 380 light on my roadbike bars. No matter if it's mounted left or right of the stem, the beam hits my shifter cables and shines in my eyes. I don't know if I should tie my cable back to the frame (puts stress on the ferrule coming out of the STI levers) or if there's secret way to reconfigure the light mount bracket.
Strips of black cloth handlebar tape applied to the cable housing? Upgrade to 7900/6700/5700 shifters which bury the shifter cables under the handlebar tape, a la Crampangoslo/ScRAM? Down-tube shifters (what I use)?
