The Importance of a Bike Brake Cable
This bicycle part is vital for smooth, efficient and safe riding. Responsible for converting the force employed by the rider to the wheel braking mechanism, brake cable allows you the ability to control your ride by slowing down safely when needed. We have the right bicycle brake cable for mountain bikes, racing bikes, BMXs, road bikes and more. Shop our range of cables today and get your bicycle back on the road or track.
What Causes Road Bike Brake Cable Failure?
There are a number of reasons why a brake cable might fail, these include:
- Unsecured cable anchorage
- Detached bike brake cable
- A bent cable housing
- Rusting and seizing up of both brake cable and housing
- Worn and damaged cables
Cables often break where they pass over a pulley or they might fray near the clamp that connects them directly to the brakes or terminal. Brake cables can also dry up and result in more difficult braking. If this happens, you can try cleaning and lubricating the cables or complete bike brake cable replacement.
It’s a good idea to check your cables regularly for wear or tear and replace them if you see any damage.
High Quality Cables Matter
Over time, cables may become stretched, frayed or damaged and ultimately require replacement.
When the time comes to replace your road bike gear cable or mountain bike brake cable, it’s worthwhile investing in high quality ones for optimal performance. They’ll be less prone to corrosion and ensure smoother and safer riding for longer. If you need to replace the brake and/or gear cables on your bike, you should also make sure you use the right tools for the job.
