And of course it ends up looking bad; a rats nest of coiled wires and various colors of cable ties. Then I go out for a ride, looking forward to seeing how far I have gone but end up head over heels as my speedo wire catches the front wheel and tosses me into the bushes.
This instructable tells how I solved this problem using some heat shrink and a soldering iron.
Step 1: Tools and Parts
You can get heat shrink at Radio Shack Home Depot etc. Sometimes you can find different colors!
And you need soldering stuff, an iron, some wire cutters, a stripper (or a knife) and solder.
And some bike tools. I only needed a couple of hex keys.
Step 2: Remove Brake cable.
Remove the cable at the brake and at the point 1/2 way up the fork there is another clamp that holds the cable out of the wheel. Remove these so you can slide the heat shrink on.
Step 3: Slide heat shrink onto the cable
I used three 8 inch long sections of heat shrink to fit my bike/cable configuration. You may need more or less.
