    Rear Der. Cable Noise

    My rear der. cable on 5-Spot is making temendous creaking noises at the housing/frame interface on the rear triangle. It is standard cable with the silver metal cable caps. I keep greasing, but this cure lasts a couple of rides. Any ideas what I can use cable wise or otherwise to stop? Anyone else have this noise?

    Replace you metal ends with plastic ones. Or put a small amount of tri flow or something on the end inside the stop.

    What endo said. These are the best since the little grub keeps all the dreck out of the housing. Sh!mano and Jagwire make them, and they are nice quiet plastic.

    My video techniques can be found in this thread.
