I think I may be alone here, but with the cold temps, it seems my rear brifter will not downshift (to the bigger cogs) without having to shift if back and forth many times, even as long as 10 - 15 minutes. So, the bike can upshift to the smaller cogs as much as I want, but when I need to upshift, it can be a real pain.
So, I use a spray lube in a can. It is labeled as a type of a silcone spray. So, my question is: Is this normal for brifters?
I have had it happen on two seperate brifters. Also, are there other lubes that prevent this from happening, or is it time to just switch to the mtn bike for road riding?
