2. Trim the excess brake cable and add a cable tip
NOTE: This video portrays a disc brake cable being adjusted. Please apply these instructions to your 1Speed front brake cable.
Using your pliers, cut the excess brake cable to leave only about 2 inches of cable.
CAUTION: This step may require you press hard on your pliers and might require multiple cuts. Be careful not to twist the wire as you do this because it might fray at the end, making it harder for you to add a cable tip.
TIP: Cut the cable close to the center of the pliers, at the base of the cutting edges to increase your leverage.
Add a cable tip at the end of the cable, and crimp it down with your pliers to secure it around the end of the cable
