Tektro RL570 Brake Cable Installation..
#1
I just picked up the Mercier Kilo TT from Bikes Direct and I just need to know how to attach the brake cables. I tried Google and Youtube for an hour or so and found nothing helpful. It doesn't seem too complicated, but it is as I've been fooling around with it for almost an hour and a half. Thanks.

I'm honestly surprised/shocked that there isn't an online tutorial anywhere on how to install these..

If you're using these as stand alone levers (not as inline interrupter levers), I think you just slide the cable in through the back (toward your pinky) side of the lever. You would probably use the mushroom shaped head on the cable (not the barrel shaped end) but whichever fits better. On these, the housing has to be able to move so you can't tape it down like you can with normal road levers.

Here's a discussion:
