What did you take the photo with, 1970’s Polaroid Camera?
Took advantage of a wet afternoon to fit inline adjusters/ cable QR gizmos on the tandem, in the belief they'd make the cantis easier to adjust and release.
Front one perfect, no problem, definitely helps.
Rear (which is where the greater difficulty lies), spent about two hours trying to get it set up right, eventually concluded cable friction due to a kink was the problem, then pinged a ferrule across the garage to lose it forever.
New ferrules and cable on order...
I hate setting up cantis!!
Shortened the rear fender on my roadbike by six inches so it didn’t look so much like the mud flap on a Kenworth dumper. These were genuine factory parts so why it would be such a poor fit is a mystery.

The front of the fender also needed a 3/8” spacer added to achieve a correct fit.

Good thing I didn’t by cheap aftermarket stuff!
You could only shift the fender forward about two inches before you ran into the stays, which are far to close to allow the fender between them, then I would have to cut a hole into the fender to allow the front derailleur cable to pass through… so too messy a job to just roll the fender forward… nice idea though.Surely it would have been better to keep the mudguard longer and run it past the bottom bracket area between the rear stays. All that area will get covered in crud now, there’s a reason why they are made 6” longer.
