Question for Someone Who Might Know:

I'm fiddling with a set of Altenberger Concorde center-pulls, and the design of the levers seems a little strange. There isn't much (except for caliper spring tension) holding the cable end in place; if it's out of adjustment, and you pull the lever in too far, the cable will pop out of its retainer. Is this just a lousy design, and should I use someone else's lever with these calipers?
