This topic blows my mind. I seen it done on everything from daily drivers to 2, 3 even 10 K show bikes. For God's sake cut that brake cable. Are people mechanical morons or just lazy ?
I mean let's face it when the cable is too long it's obvious...NO ?
Attention to detail is what makes the bike. Who cares who powder coated it or how much $$$ is invested ? If you've got an over abundance of cable it looks like sh/t !
I was cutting my brake cables to the proper length at the age of 12. Well I just seen another example and felt like shouting out !
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays
***remember cut that brake cable !***
