[RC] easy up buckles - sherman

Do you think that the cables weren’t tight enough? I usually attribute my fraying cables to loose buckles and cables. I had a brand new cable fray completely in half on a 25 mile conditioning ride. Have you mastered the art of replacing the cables yet? I tried it once, gave up & sent it in for repairs. I’m going to try it again though. I don’t like the down time of sending items in for repair.
I tried the easy up buckles on one 50.  Lost the boot a couple of times during 
the ride, normally I never lose easy boots on rides since I use them over 
shoes.  I found the adjustment hard to make compared to the regular buckles.  I 
was going to try them some more but discovered the cables were almost frayed in 
half after only doing part of a 50 so I put the regular buckles back on the 
boots.  They didn't work for me so back to the regular buckles with cotter pins 
to keep them from coming up.  Happy Trails, Kathy
