Having to change your gear cables regularly is a common affair in the UK thanks to our climate – and just squirting oil in your cable outers simply isn’t enough if you’re a regular rider. Salt from the road and other muck clogs your cables up like a fat man’s arteries.
It’s fortunate for us then, that Cable Magic exists. Settling in the bottle is a thick Teflon gloop with a thinner oil that sits on the top. When shaken well the oil transports the particles inside your outer cable, and makes them feel like new – the stuff is a revelation.
