Details
The Problem Solvers Travel Agents allow the use of any non-linear pull lever, STI or Ergo lever with any linear pull brake.

Products Uses:
Designed at the time when the industry was shifting from cantilever to linear pull brakes, the Travel Agents allowed customers to keep using their expensive integrated cantilever brake shift levers while upgrading to new linear pull mountain brakes. Today, the Travel Agent still solves problems as it allows the rider to use road drop bars and road brake / shift levers and the stronger linear pull brakes.

The primary segments that use this application are cyclocross and road tandems.

Technical Details:
- Allows non-linear pull, STI or Ergo levers to be used with linear pull brakes
- Can increase cable travel or can be used as a low friction roller to replace the noodle on linear pull brakes
- Machined and anodized 6061-T6 aluminium

ConsFriction, safety concerns.
ProsWork as designed.
There's no doubt that these do work as designed. They effectively double your dual-control brake lever cable pull to allow you to use V-brakes. But for me, the angles involved introduce a lot of friction to the system, especially at the back. The cable can also fall off the inner pulley if tension is allowed to approach zero on brake-release, giving rise to the possiblity of losing braking altogether. Much better to bite the bullet and buy some good canti brakes and a couple of brake hangers for a more powerful, solid and safer braking system.

Note that travel agents are entirely incompatible with the superb Gusset Boom V brake. They do not fit in the noodle carrier. They ARE compatible with Shimano XT V brakes (or similar).
