The third of our ‘How To’ guides from the guys at Road Cycling UK and the Mpora.com bike network features guidance on how to replace a brake cable on a road bike

In this episode, Jon Hayes, the bike mechanic at Ride, Dorset, discusses the delicate job of replacing a brake cable. Replacing a brake cable is an essential task to prevent lasting damage to the brake shifter.

Shifting with worn or corroded cables will place additional strain on shifter’s internal mechanism. A cable that splits while in situ can be extremely difficult to remove.
