I'm trying to get a friend's oooold (1995?) Trek Antelope bike back on the road. I am replacing the shifter, and I need to remove the brake lever assembly. And I cannot figure out how!
The entire brake lever assembly is underneath a plastic shroud which looks impossible to remove. There are no visible bolts or screws holding the lever assembly to the bar. the only visible screw is the adjustment screw next to the cable. The mount is labeled "M System".
The assembly looks something like this:
Any suggestions on how to non-destructively remove the brake assembly? It doesn't even look like the hood/sheath comes off to replace the cable. WTF? I could find nothing in the Zinn book or Sheldon pages.
I must be missing something obvious, I'd love to know what it is!
I think I now know why the local shops didn't want to deal with her bike.
Thanks in advance!
