When I pack up the bike for travel, I remove the stem and handlebars from the steerer, then remove the fork. That involves freeing the cables from the brakes. If I leave the cables attached, I can't store the handlebars where they need to go in the package.

I'm trying to avoid the word "rinko" here, but that's basically what I'm doing. It works really well for me. I just don't like messing with the brake-cable connections
