Bicycle Torque Couplings (BTCs)
Your Travel Bike........Your Only Bike!
Splitters aren't noticeable when installed near the bottom bracket.
Cable splitters simplify packing a bike by:
- Eliminating tangled cables. When a frame is packed, it is possible to rotate the frame sections relative to one another which can cause tangled or crossed cables. By leaving the cables
separated until the frame is reconnected, the possibility of tangling is eliminated.
- Allowing more options in placing the frame in the case. It is sometimes desirable to place frame sections in the case seperated by a wheel. Cables aren't usually long enough to go around the wheel without splitters. Without splitters, a compromise of the packing method or disconnecting and reconnecting the cables at the derailleur (not recommended) followed by readjusting is the only way around the situation. Cable splitters make the packing job much easier.
