    XCE Brake Setup

    Setting up a new XCE. The cable guides are on the bottom of the top tude. All three are the same caliber, ie there is not one with a wider hole for the rear brake line. What should I do to remedy?

    Not too tough to do. The only hassle is that you need to disassemble your brake to get it on/off the frame.

    Drilling out the brake stops is the way to go. Use a Dremel and some small files.
    I stopped driving my bike into my garage - I'm now protected with Roof Rack Ranger app for my iPhone.

    You can actually drill the stops through for the hose, but also make clearance on the slot on the top to snap the cable in place so you don't have to remove and refit the ends to slide it though. I did just this on my Burner and it worked very well.

    That's a good idea.

    Did you have to fasten the hose down or did you make it just big enough to squeeze through?
