One. Spacing on bar.
Two. Angle.
Three. Cable routing via campagnolo shifter brake housing.

Here's a start. I'll get a better picture when I get home this morning. I had to pull the Ergo's off but I think you'll get what you need. I just pushed the levers all the way in against the bulge in the center of the bar.

Here's another picture. As I say I just mounted the as close to the bulge in the center of the bars, they wouldn't go in any father.
As far as angle I placed my hand were they would normaly be on the tops, then opened my hands. Then angled the levers so they would be right there.
I don't know if you already have your bars or not but out of all the "typical" cross specs I read about as compared to the road set up the size wider bars really made sense. with the wider bars you efectively the top bar almost as wide as an MTB bar, this really inspires confidence when riding on the tops. I found my self very comfortable on the cross bar, I did everthing, sprinting up hill etc.

I have been riding the 44cm salsa bell laps for a season and 1/2, and got the IF top mount levers a while ago but have been lazy installing them. I was interest in how the cable routes into the top lever, seems simple from the photo.
On another note....
How do you like the egg beaters?

The eggbeaters are fine but I really don't have anything to compare them to. They are the only pedal I've used. I really haven't done much dis mount and mount either, so really I don't feel I can give a qualified opinion. Yes the top mount levers are very easy, the cable goes in one end and out the other. They have proved very convenient for me.
