I'm wondering if there is a secret to making the noodle clear the front motor mount upright? I have had trouble on every v brake bike I have put together. On a couple I have installed caliper brakes. Instead of bashing. Either the bike or me in the head.
Does anyone have trouble like this. Or is it just me.
Are there longer "noodles"?
Now I am running a double brake lever on the left side. As Im using the right for my throttle. So im ready for bashing for doing it. But at least. I will know you looked at my post.
Thank you.

Im kinda hesitant to try to bend the noodle, as I dont want to pinch the cable

You can bend the noodle a bit, they usually have teflon or the equivalent inside them.

There are flexible noodles on Amazon, I bought a 10-pack, myself. They come in real handy.
