On a somewhat related note - Up here in Maine during our Winter riding season, we have a problem with freezing derailleurs. About 10 years ago, I came upon a unique solution after some serious frustration over the damn derailleur freezing up. I was angry and I said, "well, P*ss on it then." And a light bulb dimly went off in the dusty and barren region I call my brain. So I Peed on the derailleur and it worked the rest of the ride. Now whenever we have the frozen derailleur problem, urination is the last thing we use, but it works.
