It installs on the left side of the back wheel, they work in any weather, they will last many many many times longer than the standard caliper brake shoes that are typically on bikes, and yes it is cable operated.
I can not give you any more details than this becuase I do not have it on my bike yet.
Do a search on e-bay under bicycle band brake or just bicycle brake and you can take a look at the set up and see how it will work.
