Prime Tune Tips - Cables & Housing

Prime Tune Tips offer advice on how to maintain your own bike and save a bit of money.

This week, our bike mechanic Lyle talks about cables and housing.

Brake or shift cables and housing can sometimes become sticky and seriously change the way you ride. Sometimes the problem can be as small mud or dirt in your cable housing but can lead to some slow braking and shifting. By keeping an eye on the cables and housing on your bike and staying aware of the feel of sticky brakes or slow shifting, this problem can be solved quickly.

If you're sensing a change in how quickly you're stopping or shifting and think it could be your cables and housing, stop by the shop for an inexpensive tune. You'll be shifting and braking like a champ again in no time!
