Again, frequency of use isn't relevant to this discussion. Not. At. All.

I think this is why the conversation is so difficult. You aren't even understanding some of the basics, though they've been...

You don't make sense. If "the road bikes have more mileage on them," that means that they "get used the most." Mileage is pretty much all that matter for shift cable wear and tear. But wait, you also...

Sigh. You've apparently been following the thread; can you really not understand this? There is no "magic mileage" since it also depends on how frequently you shift (i.e., whether you live in a...

As cxwrench and others have noted, mileage (rather than chronological age) is the key variable. Since I'm more into riding bikes than collecting them, my most ridden bikes get more miles per year...

Pffft! Why would an experienced professional mechanic know anything about it? prj71 can diagnose your problem (and mine, and many other people's) without even seeing our bikes!

Both cxwrench and I have explained the issue to you. It is inherent in the system. But I'm glad that you've been so lucky.

Which drivetrains? If Shimano 11sp, I recommend that, at minimum, you replace the RD cables. They really do go quickly -- you'll notice a couple times that you 'click' the shifter and nothing...

Do you take the same approach with your car's motor oil?



I don't know what you're running and how much you ride per year, but my Shimano 11sp bike chews through RD cables much more often than...

Done. Anyone who agrees that you should be let back into the mechanics subforum can just go over there and add to the thread I just started. Maybe Iíll see you in purgatory.

We had a poster who devised a rig for carrying an entire spare wheel, complete with tire and cassette...So I wouldn't be surprised if some paranoid bf'er was carrying a shifter around.

How is that relevant?
