If you don't have a coupled bike, you are either on a budget or you are a fool. If you are on a budget, that's cool. If you are not, you are a fool. You should get one from Glen. If you do decide to get coupled and cool, don't be a fool. Spring for the splitters.
As if I haven't already helped enough, let me walk you through the installation process:
|Those three black things in the middle are the splitters.|
You'll also need some new cables.
|Splitter close-up. The two set screws anchor one half of the splitter to|
one half of the cable. Things will make more sense in a minute.
|First under the knife was the rear brake cable.|
|Instructions say to stay 2" away from the nearest cable guide. Done, then.|
|The part of the splitter with the two set screws attaches to the the lucky end.|
The unlucky end goes away forever. It seems harsh at first,
but it's just the cycle of bike life.
|In its place anew, a young (lucky) cable. Thereby perpetuating the cycle.|
|All connected, just like nothing ever happened.|
Save for the fact that both ends are scarred for life based
on the violence thay have just witnessed.
|Lather, rinse, repeat for the shifter cables.|
It should be pretty clear at this point that no one has ever been more ready for a fold-your-bike-into-your-trunk road trip than me.
