The Quik Slic design eliminates flex in the straddle cable caused by bends, and the over or under-tightening of pinch bolts, resulting in snapped or slipping cables. It also saves money over machined straddle hangers that can look cool, but ultimately add a lot of flex. Its installation and removal on compatible frames and components is effortless.
To help you choose the length (Small, Medium or Long) you need on frames with a boss to cable stop distance of 245mm, please use this simple guide for reference. Should you have a different “Boss to Cable Stop Length”, please enter it:
To run the Quik Slic, you will need:
1. A “traditional” lever with a slotted barrel adjuster.
2. A brake with open ended arms (Odyssey, Fly Bikes, Dia-Tech, Bicycle Union, Proper, Superstar, etc.).
3. A brake boss to cable stop distance of 245mm, +10/-20. (measured from the center of the boss to the center of the cable stop).
4. A split cable guide and a split cable stop (which can often be easily modified if they are closed).
Seeing as this cable will have a fixed length, many people ask about this. The Quik Slic will be available with adequate housing to comfortably spin the bars all-the-way around once.
The Quik Slic will be available soon in both regular Slic Kable® and Linear Slic Kable® versions and they will include two simple adapters (short & long) which can aid in removing any excess housing slop at the barrel adjuster – if it is present.
