A friend of mine let me borrow his Yakima Joe Pro bike rack. When I went to mount my bike on it I noticed that my brake cable runs along the bottom of the frame of my bike. When I put my bike on this rack, the cable is pressed up against the frame of the bike. I decided to disconnect my rear brake cable. Is this necessary? Do I have to disconnect my cable every time I mount my bike on this rack? This is probably a newbie question but... what are the adverse effects of leaving it connected? The only thing I can think of is that it will stretch out the cable and I'll have to adjust my brakes periodically. Thanks.
Rack is a Yakima Joe Pro
Bike is Giant Escape 2
