I just broke by 2nd front derailler cable in less than 2 months. Both times it happened while on a ride and while i was trying to tighten the cable to get the front derailler to travel farther outward towards the outermost chainring.
Why is this happening? Should i not be trying to tighten it? It certainly has ruined two perfectly good rides.
Also how hard is it to change the derailler cables? The park tools instructions looked pretty simple.
1. Do i just need to buy some cables and a set of cutters?
2. Are the cables pretty much universal?
3. Do they come with the "ball" already on the end?
I am tired of hauling this bike to the lbs every time i break a cable. It also looks like i might need to start carrying one with me. I've broken more cables than i have had flats on that particular bike!
