Got “THE BOOK” and its having a positive impact on my riding just need to carve out more riding time! You’ve got me riding flats! Working on skills! Crazy stuff for a long time xc / clipless trail rider. (I can almost wheelie at will!) Anyways, I have a tech question – I have a 05 Devinci Remix and am lovin it for all types of riding.
The rear brake cable kinks and bursts when full travel is used regularly (my winter loop has 3 stair drops 3-4 ft to flat) my summer loops are trail rides so not an issue for most of my riding. Current fix thanks to my LBS is surgical tubing sleeve with loose zip ties – so far so good. Any other ideas in case this doesn’t hold?

I don’t know that bike, so I say rock the solution your LBS devised.
Looking at the bike online … Seems like you could axe the zip tie on the upper stay, or at least make it very loose. Oh, and braided steel hose.
Thanks for the quick response. Braided steel will be the next option. I’m off to work on my dead sailer jump it is a nasty condition! Just relax – I know. Keep up the great work – you’ve put fire in the belly of this 38 yr old dad.
Relaxing is key, but you should do this too:
