Used to converted a flat bar commuter bike to drops with STI levers. Works well. I have fat fingers and the initial threading and set up were a little more challenging than I liked, but once it was in place it was easy to adjust especially with the barrel adjuster.

My rear rack stanchion was very close to the original noodle and the travel agent got in its way. I replaced the two stanchions to the seat stays with a single to where the fender attaches to the frame and all is well.

Pros: Cheaper and simpler option than converting brakes to cantilever or long armed dual pulled calipers.

Cons: Not easy to set up if one has fat fingers.
Had to adjust my rear rack stanchions to get around the agent.

It works in a pinch but does not like mud caked onto it. Better off going to shorter armed linear pull breaks. Works great in a non CX sense.

These are a good solution to the problem of linear pull brakes with drop bar sti levers. I don't really like using caliper brakes, I don't like the chatter that I get out of cantilevers, and it's hard to find good centerpulls that have long reach for cross forks, but I'm not going to get rid of my comfy drop bars and sit levers to use linear pull brakes.

So the travel agent. They are nicely made, fit in place of a noodle with no fuss or bother, and seem to reliably give me the cable pull the linear pull brakes need. I couldn't do it without them, so I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Solved my problem!

I had moved to trekking bars on my Bianchi Advantage Hybrid and wanted to use multiple brake levers.. The problem was that both the reverse levers and the interrupter levers I wanted to use are road levers, and the bike has linear pull brakes. The Travel agent solved the incompatibility between the cable pull of the brakes vs levers. Installation was relatively simple, instructions were excellent and easy to follow.

Pros: 1. It works!
2. Easy installation. Simply replaces the noodle.
3. Price/value for what it does.


Cons: I had to do a minor bend in the stanchions on the rear rack to allow clearance for the travel agent. This may be unique to my application.

Great!

Neat little device for doing oddball setups. Putting together drop-bar MTBs usually means cobbling together separate v-brake specific levers with a barend shifter or some other less than desirable combo.These allow for a smooth, reliable STI setup to drop right on.

Pros: Allows the use of STI or reverse levers with v-brakes.
Barrel adjuster makes for a one-piece solution.

Cons: They could have rounded off the end where it slides into the stirrup, as it can be a bit of a pain compared to a brake noodle.
The need to make a cover for it, as mud and gunk thrown up by a tire can make it sound a bit squeaky.

This is a really ingenious device. I wanted to keep V brakes on my Crosscheck with Sram levers so this created the linkage. They work really well and the instructions are very straightforward so you don't need a bike shop to help you.

Pros: Allows you to use it for multiple purposes ad setups.

Cons: Doesn't look clean
