    Shifting problem resolved

    After replacing my crankset, chain and cassette I could not get my rear derailleur dialed in. How hard could it be? I've done it a thousand times dangit! It couldn't be the shifter cable because it is a Gore sealed cable designed to be maintenance free and impervious to dirt and corrosion right? Nope. I finally got fed up and took it to the shop and the wrench showed me how the cable was basically shot. I said Dude! That is a GORE cable, that shouldn't be. He said I was suckered in to getting it and to just keep with standard cable and housing. And then I told home that I bought the cable at his shop. Lol! He said that was befor his time. Anyway, just goes to show you do not rule out anything when troubleshooting problems.

    I was very disappointed with the performance of my Gore cables. Glad I got rid of them! So far my Jagwires have been way better. What bike were you having trouble with?

    I'll have to check those out. I have an RZ140. Looks like the cable housing is positioned to catch dirt.
