    New question here. Nokon cable noise/creaking....Solutions?!?

    I've been running the Nokon cables on my new Trance for 3 months now and
    love the crisp shifting and the full length housing. However, the "links" are
    starting to creak with every turn. They sound like an old lady's bones!
    Anyone know of / heard of a good solution to end the creaking?
    Even if it is something that needs to be done periodically, it would greatly
    help quite it down.

    My riding buddy...

    squirts tri-flow on his periodically. His only creak where they touch the cable stops.

    even better is a spray lube like any teflon based or sailkote ...
