I'm a bike newbie. Just purchased a single speed free wheel Peugeot U08...mid 70's. I love the look of the bike (very good condition) and it rides great. One thing I was curious about. I have seen some of these vintage single speeds with the brake cables coming out and up over the handlebars (what I have)...whereas other people seem to have somehow wrapped the brake cables to come down onto the frame (I think this looks much cleaner). Is there a reason or benefit to doing it one way over another? How would you go about doing it if you wanted to make the brake cables look cleaner, an easy fix?
Thanks! Again, sorry for the novice question. Looking forward to getting on the road!!
