Got into this discussion on another thread.

DCT owners, check the tension on the parking brake cable while at full left lock. I'm not with the bike so I had to download an image to show you the problem and I see this bike looks like mine; so either the problem is widespread, or it's not really an issue.
To release the tension that seems unnecessary, I simply rerouted the line under the other lines in the little "cable organizer" so that the parking brake takes the shortest route. No disconnecting is required, just moving around the cables. I didn't notice any tighenting of the remaining cables after this adjustment.

While on the topic you may want to test the holding power of this brake and adjust as required, mine seems pretty weak and certainly wouldn't hold the bike on a slope like 1st on the manual can.
