We will be installing this 'Front brake' on our right hand lever. Depending on your region you may want to install the 'Front brake' on the left hand lever. The process is the same, no matter which way round you would like your brakes to be set up.

Pull the brake lever against the grip and insert the inner cable anchor into the receiver within the brake lever.

Next align the barrel adjuster and nut with the slot in the back of the brake lever.

Feed the cable along the brake lever and through the barrel adjuster and nut.

Gently release the pressure on the lever, ensuring the cable stays located within the slot along the back of the lever as shown.

Once the cable is in position rotate the barrel adjuster so the cable can no longer fall out of the slot.

Take the cable outer casing and thread this back over the top of the steel inner cable.

This will open a small gap for you to be able to slot the cable through. Ensure the inner cable goes all the way through the clamp.

Lightly tighten the cable clamp. We will adjust this later when we set up the brakes after installing the front wheel.
