    So how bad is it?

    Well while out riding today some asshat apparently didn't understand what a turn signal is (or apparently the concept of slowing down before turns either), and I managed to stop just in time.. Of course it involved halfway flipping over the handlebars, and the bike falling to the side under me. On the drivetrain side naturally.

    The front wheel got pretty scratched up and got a tiny dent that tore up the tire, the handlebars are a bit bent, and the rear derrailleur and hanger are both bent.

    Any ideas how difficult it would be to repair, or how much it would cost?

    I cant see if it is a replaceable dreailleur dropout. but in the first pic, It looks like the derailleur dropout is bent and starting to crack. if it is replaceable, get a new one, and your derailleur might be ok. (if it looks bent on the new dropout then it is not ok)

    if it is not a replaceable dropout, the frame is aluminum and those are cracks in it and not just paint cracks. you might be able to straighten it ONCE. do not bend it back and forth. aluminum is very weak and it will snap.

    If it is a steel fram just bend the dropout back straight. (get a bike shop to do it with a proper tool preferably) replace the derailleur if needed, no problemo.
