Posted this in the Bicycle Mechanics Forum too but did not get an answer. Hoping somebody here will know.
I replaced my handlebar and shifters and need help installing the Travel Agent back on to the V Brakes. I forgot to note how the cable is routed and how it sits in the relaxed position. Thus this post. My bad.
Looks like the cable enters through the inner hole from the top and goes through the smaller disk then to the outer disk through the small hole in the disk and out at the bottom to the V-Brakes. When the brake is not engaged the disk should be positioned so that the little hole in the disk that sends the cable from the smaller disk to the bigger disk should sit horizontally. This position should allow the disk to rotate freely and not interfere with the inbound cable. Did I get it right?
Thanks T'Geek! That's exactly what I wanted. I googled and went through pages and pages and could not find any material. I even tried Sir Sheldon Brown. Yes they are drop bars and I'm giving SRAM Force a try.

For anyone interested, these Travel agents are a super little mechanical device that have performed flawlessly for us. The key to consistent trouble free performance is insuring they are set up exactly as the instructions show with particular attention to insure that the 'bridging hole' is in the two o'clock position when they are in their relaxed position.
I simply wanted to add for anyone interested in purchasing travel agents the model with the barrel adjusters is absolutely the way to go! On my tandem the left brake lever controls the drum brake while the right controls both front and rear v-brakes via a wishbone cable splitter. The inline barrel adjusters allow the brakes to be adjust independantly of one another, making setup and fine tuning a breeze!
