My front cantilever cable broke - one of the "arms" the stirrup cable, also known as straddle cable, broke. This cable is, in my case, fixed to the actuator cable with some sturdy plastic piece. I don't have any way to disassemble that piece of plastic (it seems to be fused). Can I fix the brake with a piece of cable that I will tighten/clamp to both brake arms and just straddle it over that piece of plastic?
My cable/brake setup looks almost identical to this one:
The part that broke is the one enveloped in that plastic tube you see going to the right brake arm.
