    My guess is the assembly that holds the cable. Loosen that and pull or push the cable. Sorry I cant be more help I haven't owned a bike with mechanical brake in a long time, I'm all hydro. What bike do you ride. Mine is a 06 Kona Scrap

    Santa Cruz Blur LT FTW!

    But yea just loosen the bolt at the top and evenly push together the two sides at the same time then re-tighten the bolt once you've pulled the extra slack through.

    I ain't frowning, my truck is my pride and joy, it's liking my girlfriend but better, no nagging, bitching, or complaining her ass is fat.

    lol I wish I had a car I gave a shit about. :(
    What you mean? Oh! That, uhhh...well you could try suing that to tighten ti but I think using that for the fine adjustments is better.

    But this is for BMX. When I get the bike from my neighbor(trade or buy) I'm taking off the brakes then. I hate brakes on BMX bikes
