I have Avid BB7s on my FS bike. In the last few weeks, whenever I use most of my rear travel, especially landing, the rear triangle is pushing the housing and cable back toward the front of the bike and the end of the housing is coming out of the female receiver on the brake and then often it hangs up rather than going back in...this has nearly caused me big problems more than once...this weekend, I was landing on a section of trail that is lose shale. When the cable hangs up like that, it engages the brake to the point where the rear tire breaks loose and I basically had to bail as I was skidding off of the trail.
Any suggestions or opinions? Is this an inherent problem with mech. brakes?? What's strange about it is that it just started in the last 2-3 weeks. I've looked over all the housing and everything looks good, so I can't figure out why this just started happening...
