Default cable guide question

Anybody have any great ideas for cable routing to a rear V brake on old FATs with the guides on the drive side of the tube? Thanks.

Did you see the 1991 Monster Fat at the end of the registry thread?

My brakes feel okay, but what kind of V's are you running?

Okay, I get it. Left and right are pretty much identical, so you swapped sides. Nice brakes btw. I acquired 2 pair Control Tech V's some time ago, that I still have to put in place.

If you have confidence in your skills you can make a one piece continus noodle from the stop to the brake. It was common to do in the early days of Vbrakes many a bike sported them here in NE. To make it you will need a tubing bender and an over sized cable to prevent the tube fom collasping on the new cable. Make gentle curves and do not forget to use teflon liner in the noodle when you are done.

I run avid ultimate vs on my buck shaver. They have reversible noodle mounts. Clean as a whistle...
