Long title, I did some searching (also browsed Sheldon) and couldn't quite find what I was looking for. If you have any links to past threads, please post them and I will gladly read through them to find my answers.
I'm installing brakes on a singlespeed build (my first bike build) and want to make sure I do it right and don't do anything that can't be undone.
As the title states, that is what I plan to do. Here are my questions
1) Is the cable naked through the length of the interior of the top tube? If so, how is the housing best precisely removed (accurately for length)?
2) Are there special ferrules that fit on the naked cable on the entrance and exit of the top tube?
3) I've attached pictures of my brake levers and the brake cables I've got. The ends don't seem correct for my needs. If they aren't what is the term/or a link for the cables I do need.
4) When I start, do i clip the bit of the actual cable that would attach to the brake assembly and remove the housing to be cut? I'm a bit confused on this part.
Any info/links/anecdotes are very welcome. This is the end of my build and I am very anxious to get it done with so I can finally ride it.
Thanks in advance!!
