    Yokozuna Reaction Cales

    I have a set I would like to use for a build up on a 2011 Giant TCR Advanced SL frame set. The brake cable housing is quite substantial ------- for any of you that have worked with Yokozuna; how did you cut the housings? Regular by-pass cable/casing cutters work? Lp

    I used a dremel to cut mine
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Thats what I thought too. Those brake housings are monsters and look as if they could best any bypass cutter. Thanks for the confirmation. Lp

    The brake housing cuts just fine with the standard Shimano/Park cable cutter.
