    Is there anywhere you know of that has longer e brake cables instead of relocating the brackets. Mine are shot anyway

    Had mine made by Control Cable. Do a search of my posts, their address and phone number are there somewhere.

    I just want to know how to make my own. I found a small hand tool for putting aluminum ferules on cable, but it didn't look like something I wanted to trust. It would be nice if there were some sort of kit so you could put your own steel ferules on cable. I wound up just cutting mine (after moving the rear axle foward and taking 20" out of my wheel base) and using 3 cable clamps in a row. I hope I find a better way without paying for custom cables.
