Brake cable keeps popping out! (ending in spectacular crashes)
OK.. I'm a slow learner. This is the 3rd time my rear brake cable has popped out while on some single track, ending with me over the bars. Epic fail, wish it was recorded, but that's another thread.
Cable end that goes in the lever, just pops out. Does not break. Nothing that I can see is loose. Lever works fine, no binding. No cable issues that I can see. Bolts are all tight everywhere.
I realize the Shimano Altus C-10 is pretty much low end stuff. (on a late 90's Specialized HardRock)
I've pulled absolutely everything relating to the rear barkes apart, cleaned, greased and re-assembled. All seems normal. Then in a week or two, during a ride, the cable pops out, and rear brakes are gone again.
