Topic - replacing cam wires for neglible cost

minexplorer - on 09 Nov 2013
dont know if this subject has been covered before.anyway i saw an ingenious way to repair cams with broken wires,without the expense of replacement wire kits.a guy i climbed with a while back,ben derby,had used the nylon 'wire' u use in garden strimmers.ive just mended 2 of my cams and its ideal.
just thread a length through the relevent holes in handle and cam lobes.cut off leaving 3mm protruding through the holes in the cam lobes.then with a knife heated on the gas stove press down on that to form a 'rivet' head.job done.a few minutes work and only about a quid or so for a reel. compared with a typical 9 for a set of wires for just one cam.
