I am going to put cross tires and a freewheel on my Surly Steamroller and ride it on some trails and I am trying to figure out how to put a rear brake on it. I have an old caliper brake screwed onto the back but I don't know how to go about hooking up a cable along the frame.
Is there a good website around that shows how to put a brake cable on a bike with no housing stops? How bad would it be to ride without a rear brake anyways? It is starting to seem like a lot of trouble and I have heard that 75% of your braking ability is through your front brake anyways.
