Tightening a loose brake lever
While climbing this morning, I wrenched one brake lever a bit. It's the bicycle equivalent of rolling your ankle; I eased up immediately before yanking the thing around the bars, and I was ginger with it the rest of the ride. But an ankle will heal by itself. I don't think a brake lever will.
Is tightening an easy fix? Or do I have to unwrap the bars to get at the nut?
