ohkay, this may not make sence, but i need this question answered.

my friend sawed of the rear brake cable holding thing on my frame ( not the actual mounts), the bit where you screw in the bolt into the brake cable holder and put your cable through, then to reach the brake. well yerh, so, my "friend" took it off, coz he thought i should be brakeless. but now i need to know is there anyway i can put brakes back on without this bit, or if there is anyway i can fix my problem ????????

yea you could either
1)run a barrel adjuster through you seat tube by drilling and tapping a hole in it
2)drill and tap your frame and use a removible gyro tab

hmm yeah its all been said. drill a hole and tap it so you can mount a new one.

your friend sounds like a dickhead, by the way. he sounds like the kid that says "do this kuz its what everyone else is doing"

last resort- use a hose clamp to hold your cable on the frame. zip ties will not be strong enough, but a hose clamp might.
