    Avid mech cable routing on Black forks

    assuming the front brake lever is on the leftside of the handlebar, what is the optimal route for the brake cable (eg. tied to the left crown then down the left leg) so that it feels smooth and most importantly, won't get caught with the front wheel. Just worried that the cable bend from lever to fork will affect brake performance. Thanks!

    Hey Flite... the routing you descibed sounds about right. My son and I just installed Avids on his Superlight with a Manitou Black. We ran it from the left side lever, between the stantions, zip-tied it to the left side of the arch and to the left leg... just above the grease port. We made the loop from the lever fairly long to make a nice gentle curve... and it works just fine. Hope this helped.
