Default Re: Cable lube

Just a note - if used as cable lube, any of the thicker lubricants such as the assorted types of greases & even many oils can result in some amount of cable drag, depending on it's viscosity. Normally not an issue it has some advantages for the seasonal rider, yet if exposed to the sub-zero temperatures of winter use the cable can actually be rendered effectively nonfunctional.

..ofc water in the housing is even worse, it's a tough road sometimes lol
