    Cable Routing

    I need some help with cable routing lads.

    Searching on here and google has just left me confused.

    Sheldon gave me some of the 'basic principles' but m confused about which side the front brake is, (I'm leaning on DS is for front, NDS rear), but then the cable routing will be funny?

    Gypsy? Kanye? I've heard you guys are pretty good with this, whats the word?

    My understanding is that traditionally (in Australia & England etc because we drive on the left side of the road) Front = DS and Rear = Non DS to allow you to control the rear brake with your left hand and signal turns etc with your right, as the law requires. So, opposite in Europe and the USA.

    Correct. As noted, Yanks do opposite.

    the Eddy Merckx shows how big your penis is if you use a right lever for the front brake.



    Front brakes are designed for a left side lever.

    I don't care for the arguments against it.
    Get over it and get used to it.

    I rode a motorbike back in Perth before I moved to Melbourne.

    I reckon I will always brake with right/front left/rear, especially when needing to pull up quickly.
