That may be the theory, but I just dropped my bike off for a complete tune-up - including a new wheel (there were cracks by the nipples) total recableing, everything soaked and cleaned, new brake pads, new bar tape, etc. Total $210. I am NOT a mechanic and let COMPETENT folks work on my bikes. However, I have about 40,000 - 50,000 miles on that bike, and this is the first recabling since 1999.
