the title says it all l. I have a really bad habit of snapping brake cables even snapped 2 nokons last month does anyone have any experience with the cables that have the built in hangers. If so do they feel any better or last longer?

what are you doing to break them?

do they break in the same place? is something rubbing or binding..?

if your brakes are set up correctly, i can't think of any reason why you'd be breaking cables so often.

HULK HANDS!


But I agree, what is causing the break? I have had the same Odyssey Linear for like 3 or 4 years without issues.

Have you checked to make sure there are no burs or anything along the cable slot in the lever? This can happen from use and abuse (read having fun) and can cut into a cable.

make sure you have proper tension in your arms. run soft pads. so you dont need to squeeze them hard. Im 285 and my brakes stop me on a dime. i run a gyro and do a million fufanus a day and dont snap cables,

odyssey m2 cable and snafu astroglide lowers.
