stuck internally routed brake cable
i have a nice frame with the rear brake cable routed through the top tube
but there is an old piece of housing stuck in there and i'm not sure how to go about removing it...
can anyone offer any ideas ?
the plastic coating seems to have broken down and formed some crusty bond
pulling on the housing from either end only serves to unravel it
i might be able to pull it out once completely unwound but i'm afraid of the wire braking off inside the top tube..
also, i would still have to scrape? out the old and decayed plastic housing cover somehow
so far i have tried tugging and mild solvents in an attempt to preserve the paint
what the hell should i do ?
