    Cross lever cables hitting each other.

    I just picked up a used Bianchi Roger. It has Cane Creek cross levers on each side of the stem, along with the brake levers on the hoods. But when I use the levers by the stem, the cables are so close to each other, when I pull one lever the cable swings out and pulls the cable on the other lever. The rear cable and housing has become so kinked that I'll have to replace it. What can I do so the cables don't interfere with each other? I can't move them out on the bar because the bar tapers down to a smaller size and the clamps would be to big.

    I have exactly the same problem, I ended up rotating one of the levers slightly so that one is higher than the other. They still touch and it isn't ideal but it doesn't affect operation and I can't notice it when I'm riding.

    I think I'm just going to put a straight bar on it.
