After two weeks of being stuck in the mail, the front cable stop finally arrived. Took a bit of grinding and drilling to get it to work in reverse...but, hey, it works.

Yoke was a pain in the butt to adjust, and it's position forced the head of the mounting bolt to be on the inside:

I'm getting antsy to ride it, so I threw on this Specialized Ass Hatchet saddle for testing.

I'm also going to do away with the Sunlite dual brake lever for a different unit. The collar for both cables sits on a pivot, which allows it to see-saw between whichever cable has the most tension. It's a terrible design that results in zero feel at the lever - plus, if one cable snaps, both of your brakes go. I don't know how a POS like this remains on the market. If the CPSC wants to do something useful, they should ban this thing.
