On my rear v-brake the excess cable sheared off (the part that has the little metal crimper/nub thing on it - real techinical terminology, I know). I bump it with my foot a lot, so I'm assuming that's why it happened.
Besides the fact that I keep scraping my leg on it, is this a big deal? I really don't want to be w/o a bike for a day while they fix it...but if it means my rear brake cable will slip and come undone, then I'll bring it in.
Thoughts? Can I ask them to make the excess shorter or something?
