Getting Cables Inside Handlebars
I have a Bike Brothers Lenke handlebar which is advertised as allowing cables to go inside. However, the gap for the cables is much smaller than any of the plugs will allow, so I imagine I have to fit them by either
1. Cutting the connectors off, feeding the wires through the bars, and then reconnecting the connectors, or
2. Disassembling the handlebar switch clusters, desoldering the wires, feeding them through the bars and then resoldering them.
Both are quite a bit of faff, with high probabilities of messing something up. Am I missing a trick?
