Avid SD7 Install - Cable to Noodle Fit
I have a couple of quick and dumb questions, but I figured I'd ask rather than assume. I am replacing my Tektro V brakes and levers with Avid SD7 brakes and levers. The cable ends (which go into the noodle) have metal ferrules on the ends. These ferrules fit into the noodle for the Tektro brakes, but do not fit into the noodle for the Avid brakes. The instructions for the Avid brakes didn't say anything about threading the cable through the noodle, or using a ferrule. I looked at the instructions for the Avid Flak Jacket cables online, and they stated not to use a ferrule when attaching to V brakes.
Am I correct in that I wouldn't use a ferrule on the SD7 brakes? Also, what is the best way to remove a ferrule, without shortening the cable housing?
