      water in brake cable. liquid above 32, solid below.

      if have multi-segment jacketed cables (not a big dummy), you can undo,
      slide the outer housing back and forth, and often see ice frozen to the
      inner.

      the single long runs, less likely to get water in them, but more of a
      pain when you do.
