Cable for pedal adjustment

Post by astaib »

Hello,

Did some of you already change the cable for the pedal adjustment? If yes, is it difficult to do?

Is the cable standard metal cable or it is a specific part from Diamond?

Thanks.

Arnaud.

The length and swaged-on ends look very specific for this one purpose. I suspect one could spend many hours/weeks trying to source one (or parts to fabricate one) elsewhere.

So I understand that I have to source it at Diamond.
Is it a part easy to replace ?

I've never done this, but I suspect it'll be trickier than it looks. You might pull one of the assemblies fully rearward and plan your moves :D
