Hi, Just been out in the garage sorting out my bike after riding at Llandegla today and pulled on the rear brake lever hard and heard a sudden snapping sound - level now moves all of the way back (until the cabel hits the stoper on the caliper) and the pad inside doesn't move at all, meaning i now have no rear brake, and was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if anyone could think what the problem could be. I havnt taken the caliper apart of anything its still on the bike, came in in a strop lol!
Thanks in advance
Jamie

Cable probably snapped.
The cable seems to be in perfect condition still, it pulls the caliper fine etc the caliper just doesn't move the pad and also has next to no spring bk (sorry for the non technical terms, don't no technical speak!)
