Ive ordered some cable now, I did think about putting it on the boss, but there are a few issues, namely:
- cables not long enough for that
- its a very wide beam and the rim would fuck it up.
- I do run panniers on the front so they'd block it.
I've ordered some cable now, and after asking a few people who are in the know they said it should be fine to chop and add cable in as long as we use enough shrink wrap to seal it.
