I was attempting to replace my stock front v brake to a better aftermarket v brake everything went ok until I tried to test it and the brake cable end, the one that connects to the brake lever, will not stay in place.
As you can see, the cable gets clamped at the brake lever entrance. On my bicycle the clamp or ferrule will not stay in place. In other words, the cable does not tighten because it will not clamp into the brake lever, it slides.
My question is.. Can this be fixed? Perhaps I can glue it in somehow? Perhaps there is something that gets clamped in a different way?
Apologies for the vague explanation.
