As someone who just caught my deR in the spokes of my favorite MTB today, I would say yes, it is very serious. (got a tiny twig in there and somehow it dragged it into the spokes, just as I started mashing up a hill.) Bad deal. Trashed the wheel, wrecked the der, and bent the hanger. Ugh. Don't be me. Me is very unhappy this afternoon.
