John inquired,,, If brake cables are not stretching when new (and requiring re-attachment to take up the slack), what is it that is causing this need for readjustment after installing any new brake cables?

I am all ears (and eyes), folks....

What you are Seeing is not cable stretch but the housing seating in the ferrules and in the cable stops on the frame, calipers and levers. Andrew kimball Decatur, Georgia
