Hi

just about finished building my AMP B4 but need a little advice :oops:

I've cabled up the V-brake arms on the rear. The only noodle I had left was a 90 degree (rear specific). However, it sticks out too much and as the cable comes up from the bottom bracket it's catching the crank.

I was hoping a 135 degree noodle would help but now I'm having doubts.

Anyone got any advice?

Would a "Rolla-ma-jig" type thing be better?

Cheers

Neil.
