The cables though they need fixing aren’t necessarily his fault, the aftermarket puch cables I’ve been complaining about for years because the internal cables many times are made too long compared to a stock cable,

I think benji corrected the problem on latest batch of puch cables he sells but otherwise you need to stock nos puch ones, I don’t like using Karps on brake cables because they crush some of the cable flat weakening it

(When you crimp a twisted cable flat some strands are tight and some are loose, it decrease the strength by 30-40%) as well as making a corrosion point and it can fail, having custom length with cast metal ends like motorcycle shops used to do back in the day is best,

They do make a adjuster you can add before the other adjuster that I’ve used a few times instead of cutting the cable and crimping it flat,
