2:1 CABLE DOUBLER
This is a really nice solution to a somewhat uncommon problem.
I wanted to be able to use both levers to operate my front brake; and not have one rattling about while riding.
This device works very well, provided the setup is perfect.
It can be a little tricky to set up, getting the tension of each cable correct and the housing length also needs to be spot on.
The device needs to be as close to the brake as possible (like 1-2cm of housing) placing the device close to the bars will strip the housing and function will suffer. Pros:
Solves a unique problem
Allows perfect operation of a brake with both leversCons:
Set up is very tricky (if you want perfect modulation from both levers)
Once the set screws are tightened, the cables cannot be used again.
Rather expensiveWould Buy Again:
