Neglected

Well, I can't say I never got my moneys worth out of this $4 shift cable.

I've had my Madone for almost 2 years now and have never changed the cables. I guess that's since it's my road bike and it never shifted poorly on me once, but the last few rides have been hell.

The cable was so frayed I couldn't even pull it though the shifter. Ended up cutting it again and pulling it out strand by strand.
I must swap cables on my mountain bike at least 3 or 4 times a year if not more, I have never let one go this far, Leonard Zinn would be so disappointed.

Nice going man. I'm in the same spot with my road bike. It shifts fine and brakes well but I know the rear deraileur cable is frayed. Time to giver' a thorough once over...
