Try clearing "Cache" so the multi quote gets cleared up. This is a good thing to do on your computer every then and again.

Why do people want to convert others to their chain lube regiment? Its like chain lube Jehovah Witnesses.
Exactly. That's why I keep telling people... forget the homebrew, forget all those fancy new chain lubes. Get ProLink, the one and only Best Chain Lube. ProLink... It's got what chains crave.

Tried it then quoted your post...and it still includes the other 2 from Dave G & SPIKE. I guess I'll just have to remember to check for other quotes and then delete them manually.

You may need a deep cleaning of your computer app. Kind of like heavily gunked up bicycle drivetrain, you gotta take it a part and scrub it thoroughly with brush and degreaser / solvent.

I think maybe it's a sign that we all should be using what chains crave. :D

All due respect to Dave G, Dave G is 110% wrong about chain lube.

Time for a tune up. This guy called me yesterday to ask how much a tune up would cost. When I gave him the price, he freaked out. "My car mechanic charges less than that. My plumber..." Like somehow my trade is worth less than theirs. Believe me, his car mechanic or plumber would have charged extra for this sh#t.

Hit it with a few squirts of WD40. It'll be like new in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

^ There are spas with a pool of little fishes that eat / clean dead skin off of your feet when you dip in. I wonder if there is a version of such creatures for gunked up machine parts... Emoticon-Think.gif

The guy must have been a beast to spend so much time in the small cog to wear it out like that. Or the rear mech was so crudded up the bike hadn't shifted in years.

I actually knew someone whose derailleur pulleys looked like that.
