Problem Solvers Travel Agent V Brake Adapter

The Problem Solver Travel Agent allows you to mix road, mountain and 'cross brakes and brake levers. Therefore, instead of buying new levers or brakes at great expense you can simply install a Travel Agent and you're good to go.


The Problem Solvers Travel Agent allows the use of any non-linear pull lever, STI or Ergo lever with any linear pull brake.

Product uses:

Designed at the time when the industry was shifting from cantilever to linear pull brakes, our Travel Agents allowed customers to keep using their expensive integrated cantilever brake shift levers while upgrading to new linear pull mountain brakes.
Today, the Travel Agent still solves problems as it allows the rider to use road drop bars and road brake/shift levers and the stronger linear pull brakes.

The primary segments that use this application are cyclocross and road tandems.

Technical details:


Allows non-linear pull, STI or Ergo levers to be used with linear pull brakes
Can increase cable travel or can be used as a low friction roller to replace the noodle on linear pull brakes
Machined and anodised 6061-T6 aluminium
Replaces V-brake spaghetti pipe with a low-friction bearing operated pulley.
Dual cable routing system provides optional leverage enhancer, which ALSO allows V-brakes to be operated effectively with conventional pull levers (e.g. Sti or Ergo etc.) if so desired.
This is the version without the cable adjuster


Problem Solvers are a company made up of Engineers by day and penny-pinchers by night. They became a company as they would rather find compatibility solutions than replace perfectly good used parts for their bikes. Problem Solvers provide the tools, parts and accessories that make being a bike mechanic easier, whether you work in a shop or in your basement/garage/home workshop.
