Just a thought, ask this question in the Bike Mechanics Forum, someone is bound to know the answer there.

I did this for an older folder that needed a rear brake. They tend to be "steptrough" and therefor neededthe cable to be routed down.

I just did that with a Weinmann centerpull brake! Never seen it done, but it wasn't hard at all. I put the cable binder bolt on the hanger, and I put them cable stop on the yoke.
