Routing cables in Tektro road brakes
I recently installed new Tektro road brakes on my drop bars and am having difficulty running the cables through the brake body. Any tips for guiding the cable into the ridiculously small space behind the lever? I installed housing and wrapped it already so I'd rather not take it apart just to do route cable.

RE: Routing cables in Tektro road brakes
You should have put the cable in, then your housing, then wrap it with bar tape...
If your housing is not properly in place, you will not be able to slide the cable in!
If your bar tape is brand new, you should be able to remove it and put it back easily...

Experience is made of success and error!!

I managed to get it to line up successfully. Fortunately I only have one lever installed so I can do the other side right next time. Thanks!
