I want my right brake lever to control front brake (Ultegra)(5 posts)

I want my right brake lever to control front brake (Ultegra)mdehner

Any reason why I can't re-route cables, so my front brake is controlled by the right-hand lever? It's Ultegra dual-control levers, with Flight Deck. Thanks.
Sure all you got to do is reroute cables.nmthe bull

Cable bend will probably be a little extreme from bar to brake.Quack

No reason why the brake wouldn't work. But the cable would have a pretty extreme bend coming off of the tape and then routing backwards to the brake caliper with only a few inches of drop to work with. My guess is that it will not work well or will work well and have ten inches of extra cable.
