A reminder...

To replace your cables often... even if they feel good. Here is my rear derailleur cable which was planning to convert my roadie to a single speed when I least expected it!

Brake cables are next as they are a little crustified and are not as smooth as I'd like them when I'm cm's away from other wheels at high speeds.

Aplogies to Jaywoo.... next time I'll post this reminder a few weeks before you snap cables out on the road! :)

Good thing I decided I could be assed checking my rear too as it looked like this one:) Thanks for the post, it's reminded me to check my brake cables as I've got 2wks off work & bucket-o-bike. Last thing I want is suddenly reduced braking on some fast long descent.
