    Carry a wheel chock(sp?)....seriously though i wouldnt know how to stop it from freezing...if i had to guess though, it is a cable system so maybe lubing the cable could be a solution?????

    You unhook the cable from one end and put this over top of it....it creates a seal over the cable end when you clamp down the handscrew....then using a lube with a straw you spray it in the desided hole on the tool and it forces the lube down the cable inside the isulation....it'll make more sense when you actually have the tool at hand and your trying to connect it to the cable.....my old streetbike had a super stiff clutch cable and i went out and bought a kit that came with the tool and lube for like ten bucks and it worked like a champ...
