    Hiding a Shimano junction box on a TCR ?

    Here,shoot your best ideas.

    I'm fed up with that thing dangling under the stem,so any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Please do not spare details like if I may end up in need to have some new longer connecting cables.

    They have new ones now that go in the end of the bars in place of the bar end plug.


    use a torque wrench

    Yeah I've thought about that but one needs a proper bar,right ? I mean,you need to need to be fully internal cable all over the bike I guess.

    It would need any of the bars that have the internal routing that are out now. With a hole by the shifter and a hole before where the bar clamps. Wire would run next to rear brake housing to exit.

    Do you have a Garmin mount out front? If so they can hang off the bottom.




    Pointing backwards.

    I took mine off my stem and moved it to the bottom of a BarFly mount. I looked at the bar end junction box, but couldn't bring myself to swap out bars just to hide the box; plus, I would have to buy new (or extend) the current cables to reach the bar end.

    People have also mounted them under their saddle as well, which requires you to drill a hole in the top of your seat post, and I'm not sure if the guy had an internal battery in his seat post or not.

    And here's a photo of the setup under the saddle. It's a TT bike though, and the oval seatpost probably allowed room for the cable to get past the internal battery.
