It was a bit cold on the commute this week; so cold, in fact, that my rear gear changer froze solid while I was taking pictures.

I’m used to this as it happens most winters, it’s an unavoidable drawback of the extremely long gear cable; usually I can pull the cable a bit and get it to work again, but this time it was frozen solid.

At some point I’ll get myself into gear (ahem) to deal with the problem, which involves taking the cable apart and slooshing it out with lube or replacing it altogether, depending on the level of crud.

This may take a while though because fortunately the weather generally warms up by the time I’m coming back, which of course means that I completely forget about the problem until the next morning…
