The one and only Seth McBikeHacks did a pretty cool video highlighting one of the benefits of electronic shifting, the clutterless cockpit!
Now, I know this may not be on the top of your list of things to do but reducing your handlebar to a single set of hydraulic brake lines is one of those zen moments that can elicit intense Marie Kondo-style joy. You may find yourself holding a handful of zipties and a length of bowden housing and asking yourself, “does this bring me joy?” And if the answer is no, click the play button below and see how far the Zen master Seth takes this challenge.
Seriously folks, do internally routed cables bring you joy? I didn’t think so. Ditch the cables and spark joy in every bike ride.
Disclaimer: Marie Kondo didn’t say it was okay to make these references. We don’t know how she feels about a cluttered cockpit, we don’t know if she shreds. We likely never will. But I bet she does, in fact, shred and her cockpit is clutter-free.
