I was about to go down a pretty extensive decline when my chain bounced partially off the big ring. Instead of stopping infront of traffic I coasted down the hill and stopped to readjust. I retracted the chain onto the ring again, mounted, pushed out and got about 10-15 feet when my bike skidded to a stop
I looked down and my previously straight derailleur was twisted and one of the cogs was broken.
I'd like to know what I did wrong. My bike lacks the mechanism (front derailleur?) to shift rings, so I do it manually.
I miss commuting on my huffy and I am sad, I am going to bring it to my LBS, since I need a new RD and it can't be straightened with the tools I have.
Here is a pic, it is basically twisted 90 degrees into the spokes
