Assistance Installing Brake levers (non-shift)
Recieved a new set of brakes to fix up an old bike, and a problem became apparent; the band clamp (the part which the brake lever bolts to the handlebars on) can't be unfixed from its tightened position. In other words, the hole which the bolt from the lever is threaded through, cannot be unclasped and the band thus cannot be encircled around the handlebars.
The clasp (with the thread hole) appears to be wleded into position, and I am unsure how to procede.
This is for a pair of Tektro R200 road brakes.
Thank you in advance,
