Just bought my first bike and it was put together by the store. I was wondering if this little cable/wire is okay, it's hitting my pedal every time I’m riding. It doesn’t really bother me, but I don’t want it to end up messing something up really bad. Help please new bike owner
Nope, it won't hurt anything. It's unlikely, but the worst case is that you might knock the cable crimp (the cap on the end of that cable) off eventually, which could then cause the cable to fray, which would then eventually need to be replaced.
I would try to bend the cable so that it is tucked away behind a piece of the bike frame or the front derailleur (the thing that shifts your front gears) so that it is silent and worry-free.
Enjoy the new bike!
