The Quik-Slic Kable® design eliminates flex in the straddle cable caused by bends, and the over or under-tightening of pinch bolts, resulting in snapped or slipping cables. It also saves money over machined straddle hangers that can look cool, but ultimately add a lot of flex. Its installation and removal of compatible frames and components is effortless.
TO RUN THE QUIK-SLIC, YOU WILL NEED:
1. A “traditional” lever with a slotted barrel adjuster.
2. A brake with open ended arms (Odyssey, Fly Bikes, Dia-Tech, Bicycle Union, Proper, Superstar, etc.).
3. A brake boss to cable stop distance of 245mm, +10/-20. (measured from the center of the boss to the center of the cable stop).
4. A split cable guide and a split cable stop (which can often be easily modified if they are closed).
Seeing as this cable will have a fixed length, many people ask about this. The Quik Slic Kable® will be available with adequate housing to comfortably spin the bars all-the-way around once.
