I bought a Kona Stuff 05 about 1 tear ago, and I love it. The only problem I have with it, is its ass-whack derailleur. It broke once, replaced it. Broke a second time, and Iíve had enough with it. Currently I have a broken 8 Speed Shimano Alivio RD-M410-L, and want a better one that may not break so often. To replace this Alivio with another Alivio will cost about $40. I have no trouble buying another, better, derailleur for $100.
I mostly free ride and mountain bike. Does anyone have any recommendation for a derailleur that wonít break itself, or my wallet?
