You know that plate that holds your shifter cables…

Friendly tip of the day… You know that plate that holds your shifter cables underneath the bottom bracket?.. Yeah, don’t forget to lube where the cables slide through.

I did. Uh, forget to lube that. You know, a funny thing happens when you sweat a lot, like I do, when you’re riding…at reasonably high speeds – all the sweat that doesn’t dry on the frame works down the frame…to that plate, and corrodes the cables. Add to that an occasional puddle or a downpour and the cables seize up.


Stiff shifting tonight… Lubed ’em up, good as new. Go figure. Forgot about the ride right after a rain last week too.
