Includes cable adjuster.

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

Product Uses:
Designed at the time when the industry was shifting from cantilever to linear pull brakes, the Travel Agent allowed customers to keep using their 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.

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

Travel Agent Looses Mechanical Advantage

1 / 5
Conshave to keep them adjusted weekly.
Proslooks like it will work
Experience with Quality Bicycle Products' Travel Agents only:
installed on my tandem when upgrading to Ergo and dropped bars. I found the cables would creep around the pulley. The cable entering the "bridging hole" moved from parallel to the housing/ adjusting barrel, to "3o"clock." Result was effectively lengthening the cable, resulting in loss of mechanical advantage. The brake levers would bottom out! I tried new cables, super gluing the cable at the bridging hole, tightening the brake return springs, nothing worked. Finally replaced the V brakes with short pull cantis. If anyone has a suggestion I'm wide open....

Conscomplex cable path maintenance
Prospowerful, only solution
A great solution! Being used to hydraulic disc brakes on my theree mountain bikes, I was getting fed up of the poor performance of the cantilevers on my cross bike, I decided to give these a go. Running Shimano STI levers set up with Avid vbrakes and these allow the best function possible. Great modulation allows me plenty of control through the braking ark. They do take a little care to set up, but the instructions are very clear and easy enough to follow. I can see that amount of exposed cable, which curves round the cam, will need attention and be kept clean and lubricated more than an enclosed system, but a little maintenance is small price to pay for confident braking.

The unit seems a little pricey, but they're worth every penny, especially when I consider that I don't have to invest in another set of discs to get reasonable braking on my crosser!

Prosworks, neat, easy to use
Wanted to use STI levers with V brakes. While front (with short cable) worked fine rear was very spongy. This neat piece of kit , which replaced the brake noodle, made all the difference and now hav
