Washed bike, relubed with not enough lube. Now the left brake sticks and is nasty, and no matter how I tweak the front derailleur, it still makes a horrible clicking noise as each chain link flicks past it.
Perhaps you need a pen and paper?
Take one problem at a time. eg left brake. Now list some possible causes. eg . cable frayed in brake handle, crap in rear brake arms, cable dry/needs lube.
Now sit down and think of one possible cause at a time, and devise a method to test for each possible problem.
Should I go on?
i think i need more bike knowledge for that solution! i tried to lube the cable.. no go. thinking of lubing the actual handle mechanism.. however.. i dont want to mess it up. i will try and get it to a shop. i had been planning a tune before mid november anyway.. before s2s.. but i dont think ill be able to fit it in before fitz's
