Edman, I'm not going to say if it is the best way but I used powder graphite on mine when they started sticking. I pulled them out of the handle at the top and worked the graphite down the cables. That was 8 months ago and they are still silky smooth. There may be a better way or a lube that does not attract dirt.

Hi, Max

Thanks for the reply! I guess you just disconnect from the handles and spray the graphite, which is in a tube, in the cable. Again, thanks!!!

After I unhooked them at the grip I held them upright and worked the cable in and out while adding lube to the top of the cable. Remember gravity will keep the lube going down for a long time.

I found the easiest way for me was to unscrew the adjusting ferule and use a spray lube. One of the best lubes I have found for cables is Honda's (sorry) O-ring Chain Lube. It has teflon and molybdenum in it and lasts a very long time.
