    it's been a few months, but a while back someone posted a picture on here showing how he rigged up his brake cable so he could spin his handle bars quite a bit. i looked for the picture, but i can't find it anywhere. does anyone have any ideas who he may have been, if he's still around etc? as it stands, sometimes when i bail out my handle bars catch and spin too far, stressing everything out too much. i'm looking to alleviate that problem. sure, i'd like to alleviate the need for bailing out, but until i have reached a state of perfection i'd settle for figuring out a swell way to route that brake cable. thanks.

    Just remove the top of the headset and the starnut inside the steertube. Then run your front brake thru there. As for the back brake...well not sure about that except for the gyro.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    you probably shouldn't play with guns while the lights are out. the longer cables would have to be freakishly long with the amount of spining going on there, i would think. maybe not. oh, and before you shut the lights off again, empty the clip and the chamber first, just to be safe.

    so what, you're saying that i can take the headset apart, and go through there without having to put it back together? can you get away with that?
