I posted something similar to the below in the mechanics forum but so far no answerer. So I thought I would post it here because it may be mote of a touring trick than a mechanic fix.
I have Tiagra shifters on my dropped bars, I need to get the cables out of the way to fit a handle bar bag.
Someone suggested these but they are $8 a piece. Not that it is going to break me but that is a lot of money for something I could easily loose.
I understand that V-Brake noodles can be used? As mentioned on the page.
Do these types of noodles work with Tiagra brake handles?
Other than the amount of bend, what is the difference between a 135 and a 90? Is there a downside to bending too much?
Is there a downside to adding noodles in general?
What do I do with the barrel adjusters when adding the noodles?
