2 lever one brake. I wanna see your setups
Im building up a polo rig, This is the first season I have played and I have been borrowing bikes. I am left handed but I have had to play a couple rounds on right handed bikes. No problem really since I have always been good with both my hand in sports and so on. But I want a ambidextrous rig...
In between the barrel adjusters there will be a piece of steel with the cables coming from the lever bolted to it then a single cable running down to the brake arm I cut off and attached to the fork.
I had this all figured out, but it was connected to a "U" brake hangar and it was starting to bend and would not hold out much longer.
Also the stem is a old stlye flex stem so it made the brakes less effective since the stem would tilt down when the levers where pulled. I took out the rubber brushing so it does not flex. But the problem of the way the cables are attached to the metal plate still bothers me. If one lever pulls it will pull from the side, it should pull from the middle so it makes a straight line, less cable wear more efficient for and so on.
I know problem solvers makes a thing for this, but it is 60 bucks and I would rather not spend that much on this.
Or if anyone has a primo pervert they wanna sell I would gladly take it
