dérailleurs during the past 9 winters here in Wisconsin.
Once I threw some hot water on them. What do you do?
I imagine Avid BB-5 cable disc brakes would probably be great but
I have some Avid BB-7 cable disc brakes for the past year and half.
They're a far cry better than my rim brakes to the point of being
almost dangerous. Once I applied to much pressure to the front
disc brake at 2-3 mph and did a endo. No one was around to
appreciate the humorous comedy of errors but me. -Mark H.
