Hi, If you did manage to replace the front cable, you should be fine with the rear too. :D

first of all, you need to open up the gearbox using 3,4,6mm Allen keys. (Please refer other topics).

Ah, of course you need 8mm hex wrench (spanner) to remove cable from the brake band.
Adding to that please note you will need TWO 4mm Allen keys to complete the rest of the job!

This screws might be a little hard to unscrew, but you can do it with steady force. Both of the screws are straight forward normal thread. Soon or later, either one of the screws would come off. It seems the screws are reinforced with Thread lock, so better to apply it when putting them back.:wink:

You just need to slide it off the metal tube. no need to disassemble the seattube assy.

Then rest of it is pretty much the same as the front brake cable replacement job. http://www.abikecentral.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=245
Good luck! :wink:

My A-bike's rear brake cable length was...

top cable = 86.5cm=34inches

bottom cable = 56cm=22inches
