I needed to replace the front brake cable on my old brompton, so (after a bit of searching) ordered what I thought was the right cable (QBRCABFA-M from sjs cycles). Turns out, it was the wrong one and the nipple is too small for my brake lever.
As described in this blog post: http://blog.brilliantbikes.co.uk/2015/05/brompton-10-degree-brake-lever.html ... brompton move away from their own brake cables to a more standard type in 2012.
It seems the old cables are quite difficult to find now, the front cable I purchased was the only one I could find that looked right. One option might be to buy this cable for the rear brake, and cut the cable to the right length for the front...
So, my question is, how can I get round this without buying new brake levers? Anyone have any other bright ideas?
