Have I mentioned before that my clutch is a pain in the arse? Well, actually, I did. And it´s a pity that I still have to address this problem. But the issue might be solved now since I have had my clutch cable rebuilt properly by Urban Motor.
The last cable, number 3 within 2.000 kilometers, showed signs of wear again: The lever nipple was already dissolving from the cable itself, resulting in a delayed bite point: My trust into it was lost – poor aftermarket quality. So I visited my mates from Urban Motor, namely wrenching god Henry, who tuned the cable just as needed: New wire, new nipples, all properly brazed and greased. I had to widen the cable gap in the lever just a little afterwards but that was no big deal – luckily!
The result does not only reduce leverage forces significantly but also seems to be pretty strong. No trouble until now! Whenever I´ll have to replace this part again, the cable itself cannot be blamed any longer…
BTW: Never talk about “greased nipples” when girls are around. They can definitely get you wrong… 😉
