I'm putting on BB7s with Avid Speed Dial SL levers. I got brake cables from the LBS. The cable has the road bike-style end on one end and the MTB-style end on the other. However, even the MTB-style cable end just seems to sit in the SL lever loosely. I'm new to trying to work on my bike(s), but this doesn't really seem right to me. I would've thought it would be a tight/secure fit.
Are there different size MTB brake cable ends or is the end really only supposed to fit loosely in the SL lever?
