In The Nick of Time

It’s a good thing that I decided to give the El Mariachi Ti a quick wash and a once-over before this Saturday’s race. I’d noticed some quirky shifting on the last couple of rides, and apparently this was the cause. I hadn’t planned on replacing the cable and housing this evening, but I was glad to do it now than angrily after dealing with a cable failure (and emergency single speed conversion) mid-race.

I’m really glad it didn’t let go on any of the other rides I’d done recently. I’d been noticing some issues with shifting near the top end of the cassette recently, but after recabling things those quirks seem gone and the bike is ready to ride.
