I'm (finally) switching over to the heavy-duty (mountain biking) front light for my winter commute, but I don't have a nice thick down tube to prop the battery on, like with my old bike (I'm riding a Marin Mill Valley now). So I've got it velcroed to the top tube, hanging down. This pulls the rear brake cable out slightly though. I've check to make sure the rear brake isn't tightened so much as to rub, but I want to be sure that there's no real harm done in having a constant, slight pull on this cable..? Could it weaken/loosen/fray the cable over time?
If so, I suppose I can just take the light battery off during the day and 70 minutes of riding a day can't do too much harm...
thanks for your thoughts!
