Which way is my steel cable supposed to run?Updated a year ago

Great question! This one comes down to which post you have, and which lever you are pairing with that post.

If you are running one of our internally routed posts you can run that cable either direction.

If you are running the fixed end of the cable (looks like a small metal cylinder/finely wrapped burrito at the post, you will need to utilize the open barrel (found inside the sticker packet) around that fixed end and into the actuator.  

If you are running the cut end of the cable at the post, you will need to utilize the hexed barrel, which has the ability to tighten on to the cable via the small tension bolts inside the barrel.

If you are running one of our externally routed posts you will need to run the fixed end of the cable (looks like a small metal cylinder/finely wrapped burrito) at the post actuator under the dust cap. This will slide in to that actuator without a barrel nut.
