I noticed today that my the cable controlling my front derailleur is beginning to fray. Hoping to get this great group's thoughts on the situation.
It's a Shimano 105 2x11. Bike has about 150 miles on it.
Q1: Does it seem surprising that it's happening so soon? Could I be doing anything in my riding or maintenance to bring on this problem?
Q2: How close is it to failing? If I continue to ride till it fails could I cause more damage (other than a long walk home), or should I get it fixed right away?
UPDATE: a few people asked for additional pictures of the assembly. Adding 2 more. Thanks.
