Question about Mongoose Cycling
The brake cables will not move through the casings as far as i can tell. i tried lubricating the cables to no avail. how do i take apart the casings and replace them?
Usually the nut on the rear brake caliper is a 10mm. Loosen the nut and the caliper should spring open. Pull on the cable housing where it touches the caliper and it should pull out of the cable clamp that you loosened to start the process. Pull the cable housing off of the cable. Look at the cable and see if it is rusty. If it is then replace it. There is a good chance that the cable housing is rusty inside of it as well, it's a good idea to replace it too. Go to your favorite bike supply store and get a replacement cable and housing that is longer than the one you removed. When you get back to working on the bike , remove the cable from the housing, if it has an end on both ends of the cable cut the one off that you don't need. Once you have the cable removed from the housing pick up the cable housing, compare it to the original housing and cut the new one the same length as the original. Thread it back into the holders on the bike as the old one was. Now install the cable onto the bicycle. Let the new cable protrude out of the housing, thread it into the cable clamp that you loosened in the beginning, squeeze the caliper together and pull on the cable. Now that you are holding the cable tight with one hand take the 10mm wrench and tighten the clamp. Project finished.
