I've been able to remove the straddle cable, although it does require the brake cable to be bent a bit.
Here's a shot of the front brake....

Would this work for you?

Yes, something like that should work very well. As I noted in my previous post, in reply to The Golden Boy, I really should have been able to think this through on my own, but started off on the wrong foot by assuming something I shouldn't have. I tend to overthink things, but in this case I managed to underthink them. Thanks for the photo. I like the colors--what's the bike?
