Ok so I am converting my rear brakes into front brakes because my fixed gear only came with rear brakes. I can skid so I dont really need my rear brakes, and if I ever do switch to ss I would just buy a matching set of front and rear.
Where can I buy a longer recessed bolt for the front? And how do I know the size I need, what if it is too long, should I just take it to a shop and have a mechanic do it?
Also, how can I cut the line? I have some strong scissors and a pvc cutter at most, but no wire cutter. I do not know if those would cut it? Thanks.
Don't know where to get a longer bolt, but I'd advise not to use a scissor or pvc cutter both will fray the cables. You won't get a clean cut and most likely f up the scissor. If you are going to have it done at the shop, just let the mechanic handle it, if not then go out and buy a good cable cutter from a hardware shop or spring for a shop quality Park one.
Get remember to practice safe braking with a condom or cable end cap on the cable ends so it doesn't fray on you.
