top mounted brake levers-how to install?NEthingbutlast

i am NOT mechanically inclined...is it hard to do?

is there a site i can visit that gives step by step instructions?

do i need to buy a new brake cable or can i use the existing brake cable (brand new cross bike).

i just got back into biking and don't want to destroy the bike by "learning" how to put these brake levers on!

thanks in advanced for any input!

Here's a link. You can use the existing cable and housing, but you'll have to remove everything and rethread it all. Not that hard, though it helps to have cable/housing cutters.

Important: Get the lever to lever housing exact right length nmTFerguson
