Am i the only one who manages to get through at least one front mech (and sometimes two) a year? And if so what the hell am i doing wrong?
On the way in to work this morning i went to change into the granny for a climb and the mech didn't budge, slack cable but mech stuck, and this is about the sixth mech in 3 years! I ride in all weathers and the bike is pretty well maintained, after cleaning i give the mech a quick spray of GT85 to clear out any water but thats about it.
On the other hand my MTB mechs keep on running despite being stored covered in mud and crap and having considerably less maintenance. It's frustrating to say the least.
