i just used the the wire cutting part of a shitty old pair of needle nosed pliers for the brake cables, and the cable housing/tubing.What kind of cable cutters do I need to cut brake cable? It looks like I also need to replace a brake cable.... I have various wire cutters around the house, and also a massive chain or cable cutter - will that do?
^ This is why I need my brakes.Crusing down greenwood hill from danforth on my way home from work monday night, and i was flying, but able to pedal faster than my bike could coast so was having a blast, went under the bridge, came up over the little hill and was enjoying my cruise down to Gerrard, when for some awesome reason i took my feet off the pedals for a second, then i was like ' FOK ' and cruised down till i hit the lights with my legs sticking out in front and slightly out to avoid pedals bashing me legs senseless and braked to a slow enough speed to get my feet back on, very very glad i had brakes hahaha or that could have sucked.
Fixed gear riding 101, dont take feet off pedals - check( need some straps asap, and fenders.)
These ones. Don't waste your time with the clip on fenders.
