one cold winter evening, using water from my water bottle to rinse off road salt & slush from my drivetrain when i got home from work & leaving the bike out over night.

the next morning on the ride to work, I discovered the rear derailer (cable) was locked up & I had to stop, disassemble, manually clean the ice out of the cable housing, then reassemble the cable, all it in the dark, on the road, in sub freezing temps

after that, I started bringing the bike inside overnight ... duh
