Front brake cable change
« on: February 24, 2013, 01:14:55 AM »
Any simple advice for doing this before I start?  Mine is frayed down at the adjuster and I better take care of it at home rather than on the road.   :o

Just the usual stuff.
 Now would be a good time to go through the brake system from the tip of the lever to the surface of the drum and give things a good cleaning and looking at.

My self I lube the hand lever pivot, the cable and both the lugs on both ends of  it.

 
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.
