broken decomp cable

Recommended Posts

2 broken cables in 2 rides?? WTF!!!!! First cable was on there for over a year before it crapped out. Frayed out about 3/4" from the lever end. Replaced cable with new after inspecting the lever perch for trouble spots, filing a bit around the edges to smooth out any hidden burrs, cleaning with air/brake cleans and a touch of grease to help things along. Second cable lasted one ride ( maybe a dozen starts or so) and it is over half frayed through in the same spot.

Anyone have this trouble on their bike?? Any good fixes? Kicking over a 510 on a steep muddy hill after your friend on a yammi stops short of the top to contemplate that burning question " Coke or Pepsi?" just isn't as much fun without decomp assist.
