How Brake Cable Works
Cables are used for braking on bicycles with cable-pull brakes. Consisting of two parts, an inner cable and an outer cable housing, they work by transmitting force using a combination of tension on the inner cable and compression to the housing. If you notice any signs of damage or wear, or your braking is a little slower than it should be, you may need to replace your brake cable.
The Importance of High Quality Brake Cable
Brake cables have to withstand a lot of stress, and if a bike brake cable fails, the result could be disastrous. It’s well worth investing in a high-end cable kit that will allow you to ride with confidence. Good quality cables are less prone to corroding and should ensure a smoother and safer ride. It’s a good idea to check your bicycle brake cables regularly for wear or fraying and replace them if you see any damage. Brake cable is an affordable bike component, so when replacing yours, investing in a high-quality set will be worth the extra expense for the improved performance.
Replacing Your Brake Cable
Typically, bicycle brake cable should be replaced when it is worn out and has a reduced braking efficiency. This is usually around every 3,000 to 5,000 kilometres. If you’re replacing the brake cables on your bike, it’s important to use the right tools to get a clean finish. Bike cable cutters are a great tool that will ensure a professional result. It’s also important that you fit the correct caps/ferrules to the cut ends of the cables to prevent fraying and to keep the drivetrain and brakes working properly.
