I purchased my bike 7 weeks ago and have been loving getting out on it. I've done about 400 miles so far, but twice got absolutely soaked. One ride was 5-6 hrs in constant rain! Bike has been cleaned meticulously each time after use.
My issue is now that my rear brake is notchy and sticking... I partially stripped it down last night and cleaned the cable, then reassembled and its still sticky.
Do you think I really need a new cable already? The cables are Shimano SLR cables so I thought they'd last longer than 400 miles/7 weeks.
If I replace them what would you suggest?
Thanks for any help.
