Alright, I just got my new brakes on a couple days ago. Im really enjoying them actually... But i keep having cable issues.

The housing keeps getting all jank, and has actually broken twice. Should i just get a new cable, or is there a way to make it stop getting screwed up? I have an Odyssey Linear cable.

Also, what could be causing it? Is it possibly caused by me pulling my brakes too hard?

I have had 3 Ezra elixors, 1 kink DX a odyssey linear & a mission
My kink DX felt REALLY good and lasted but I can get the ezra elixors for 6 $ so I just buy those.
Im going to buy a couple OEM cables off danscomp because theyre 5 $ & pre cut.

Ya, right now I'm riding a Rush lever, Odyssey linear slic cable, Odyssey Springfields, and clear Odyssey Slim-by-four pads. When my cable isnt fucking up, theyre fantastic

cables shouldn't bet messed up unless you're spinning your bars around and they get stretched out.

If your brakes work well, you should be able to use one finger to stop/do tricks. Even if you use two fingers you shouldn't have to death pull the lever. So if that's what you're doing, stop doing it.

To make your brakes work well, lube the cable, lube the brake posts and clean your pads/rims.

this, and if it is getting fucked from spinning and such, make sure you cut it a little bit longer than you were

i use 2 fingers on the lever. everything is assembled 100% correct its not stretching or anything... the housing keeps breaking about an inch from the barrel adjuster on the lever. also the cable gets wavy

Hi bike guru here and about linear cables they were designed for dérailleur bikes to keep the outer casing from compressing so the shifting would be uniform and not change from the constant compaction of the housing like round wound casing from the old days of cable casing they were not designed for brakes so the problem you are having will always happen the only way to solve this problem is to buy the alloy barrel casing that is a individual alloy barrel type of casing it is more expensive but you won't have this problem any more.

far less people have issues with linear cables than those that do have issues with them.

Just stop squeezing your lever so damn hard.
