I picked up my conquest pro yesterday from my dealer. It is sweet! Just for info..The spec's stated michelin tires & fsa isis btm brkt. It came with Kendas & a standard btm brkt. Still very nice but not as listed. My dealer gave it to me unassembled so I can build it up myself. (my choice) Anybody have any tips on the inline brake levers? i've never installed before. Thanks.

In-line brake levers are pretty much a no-brainer. Tape the housing in place without the inline levers and cut to length. Then install the inline levers, put the housing back in place and figure out how much you'll need to cut out of the middle. Usually it's right around 1/2".

after install, there was a lot of drag on the cables. i found some burrs on the inside of the inline levers where the cable goes thru. after removal i noticed a big difference. now to get the radius brakes to work. past posts indicate a change in pads will be in order. thanks for the reply flyweight.
