Im going to service my cables tonight as winter grot has taken its toll on shifting. The last couple of times I just replaced everything. but since I bought XT last time I want to try and be less wastefull and just clean them out.
I have never been a big fan of oiling cables - in my experiance they last longer dry as the oil atracts filth or at best just gets washed out. But since the cables arent new anymore I have been pondering what else I have in the garage that might work better.
My initial thought was dry motorcycle chain lube. Anyone tried dry lube before? I intend to spray a load of degreaser down the outers first.
