I'm in the process of changing over to an old Avid BB7 caliper and Odyssey SLS Linear brake cable. I thought I had tightened the ferrule well after cutting the housing, but decided to double check after bedding it in. And this is what I found. The ferrule was off, and it looks like the inner cables have slid out.
I tried to push them back in, but they won't budge. I'm worried if I just trim everything back that there will be a gap on the other side, and that it might cause problems? Anyone have any suggestions for how to fix it? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
