Im pretty new at road biking and i just did my longest trip. 85 mile from schenectady to Lake George. But I think I bent my rear derailer. I have a shimano sora derailer and it appears to be bent outwards away from the wheels. I think it may have bent when I fell over( i just got the spd pedals and shoes, had a few falls ; ) I think that it bent and it is preventing me from shifting into 1rst gear, plus the derailer seems to be making alot more noise and gear grinding than it used to. Is there anything i can do to unbend it, or should i just bring my bike into a shop?
Thanks for any help!
