Remove inner cable - clean with spirit and re- insert first.

Re: My 5ino's transatlantic adventure

Remove the whole inner cable? Didn't know that was possible. Is it an easy job?

Re: My 5ino's transatlantic adventure

Ok thanks. I might start by just cleaning both ends and re-greasing them.

Re: My 5ino's transatlantic adventure

any update with your rear brakes?
I've read through the whole thread and I think your E-Brake isn't releasing enough. One way to be sure, loosen it up fully so it's not engaging at all. While you do have to push the pads in a bit when you've installed a wheel cylinder, you shouldn't have to beat on it so much - I'd use a strap wrench if I needed to compress them a bit, but what you are describing sounds like the brake is expanded so easiest to begin with disconnecting the e-brake and eliminating that possibility.

I also think you still have some brake bleeding to do to fix the soft pedal issue.
It's not uncommon to have to bleed them 3-4 times when you've replaced lines.

As for the grinding noise - I'd go with a wheel bearing too.
