On Episode 6, the YouTube's master mechanic says that if you're gonna ride in the streets on a BMX bike, you ought to have brakes. This episode is a concise and focused lesson on installing a front brake cable on a new Diamondback Grind Pro.
Details are visibly covered, from threading the cable, snipping off the casing (using Park Tools CN-10 parrot nose clippers), and using ferrules to keep things together. At the brake end, spring adjusting screws and anchor bolts are explained, along with why you should have enough cable slack. Great nuts & bolts learning, without a lot of distractions.
