Welcome to the forum Sjubbis. That's a nice looking bike you have there, I can imagine you're impatient for the snow to melt.

Welcome sjubbis!

Personally don't know how all you northern people (including those in North America) handle your long cold winters...We get some cold and wet days, but rarely much lower than one or two degrees celcius and that is on the coldest night of the year!

That looks like a nice bike, not surprised you like how it rides.

It's hard to tell from the pics, but your housing appears to have some sharpish bends indeed, which might cause your brake to not return properly.

It also looks like the rear housing is a tad long, pushing against the brake and thus making it go off-center. Can't really tell from here, but something you could look at.
"Nothing compares to the simple pleasures of a bike ride," said John F. Kennedy, a man who had the pleasure of Marilyn Monroe.
