Cycling in Sydney Australia
As you can imagine, I was devastated last month to find out that my OEM gear cable had frayed and needed repairing.
It's been about three weeks that I have been unable to use my biggest chainring, and at long last, my precious Wiggle package arrived today!
I am a bit of a maintenance & repair newbie... I shamefully admit that I do not do any kind of maintenance on my bike, other than keeping the tyres inflated, lights working, and the inevitable puncture repairs.
However, I decided the time has come that I learn about it, so rather taking her in to my LBS to get fixed up, I was told that cable replacement is a straightforward job.
To cut a presumably dull story short, I have achieved what I set out to do, I have made a mess of the flat, I had a great time and now feel motivated to do more bike-DIY, including cleaning and lubing, and best of all, I can now use all of my gears again! Bring on those Strava segments!
