Bike Friday - Bad Cabling?
hey all...i must sound like a BF troll because i keep having problems, but i just want to make sure if this is a real or imagined problem...

the cabling for my front brake seems a little wonky....when i spin the wheel and turn the bars right, it pulls enough cable to stop the wheel....

is this a problem? does anyone else have this issue? can the cables be routed any other way and still maintain the fold?

ok..i figured it out..disassembled the bars and reassembled them...they had an extra twist when i first mounted them...

I've noticed that if I'm not careful when I pull out/put in the handlebar stem, I can get my cables bollixed up, too. Now I just try to be more aware of what cable is going where when I fold/unfold.
