I had the please of speaking with Tim on his PedalShift Podcast recently. We had a chance to talk about all kinds of stuff, even Poutine. It was fun to share some hacks and tricks for reducing weight, cooking with a stove, keytosis and all kinds of stuff. Our part of the episode starts at 6:17 or so. Enjoy.
In the podcast, we talked about a handlebar hack to reroute shifter cables so you can install a handlebar bag. Here's a quick video showing how that works.
Just a quick hack here that i use to get my routing cables out of the way. The main problem here is that entry level index shifters usually have cables right where you'd want to be putting your handlebar bag. If you jam your bag there, it'll be constantly stressing the cables and will probably result in breaking a cable as some point.
This hack, lets you get the cables out of the way and keep them protected without having to upgrade your shifters.
