FAQ:

Q: What is the best cable bike lock?

A: An excellent choice when listing the five best cable bicycle locks is the Master Lock Keyed Cable Lock number 8218DPS. The benefit of this lock is the anti-pick, anti theft technology combined with the hardened steel sleeve.

Q: What is the best Lube for a bicycle?

A: Use the newer 11-speed chains on your 10-speed drive train. Clean the chain after each ride. Over-lubing is required to get higher mileage out of a chain. The best chain lube is a wet-lube. Use a lube such as Synthetic Shell Rotella or Mobil 1 instead of a high priced specific bicycle chain lube.

Q: How does a bicycle brake cable work?

A: Most hand brakes on a bike consist of a line that runs from a lever to a caliper. The cable pulls the caliper closed. This closing action presses nubs or tabs up against the tire to slow or stop the rotation.
