Do I change gears too often?

Saturday, December 20th, 2008 at 01:05pm

On Thursday I noticed that my rear derailleur wasn’t shifting properly, it wouldn’t shift up to the largest gear. Once I got home I confirmed my initial suspicion, that the cable had again broken inside the shifter. As well as this happening on my old bike, this is the second time it has happened since I got this bike.

But what does this mean?

Other parts such as brake pads and even chains are expected to wear out. But I have never heard anyone mention cables breaking under normal use.

Unless what I am doing isn’t normal use…
