I did something really stupid and clumsy today and feel lower than a bow-legged caterpillar because of it.
I ran my deraillieur into the spokes on a hillclimb while riding my Carbon Pro.
(switched the 8s 130mm wheels for the 7s 126mm wheels and didnt set the limiter for 7)
damage sustained is limited to a jockey wheel and the BROKEN DERAILLIEUR HANGER.
I know I have put myself in a bad place here, I have ruined my favorite bike, and possibly taken it out of commission for good.
So I am calling on all experts in early CF, filing aluminum, replacing dropouts, voodoo, ANYTHING to lend some advice on what to do.
I do have the broken piece to complete the DO if a new one must be fabbed, but thats still leaving a lot of guessing as to rebonding the chainstay.
There is also a great CF repair resource in Oregon, but this is not modern carbon, its from 1989 so I'm not sure what results may come.
Thanks in advance to the biggest family I have.
You all have been a great community for me to be in for years and many of you know I have been having a really bad summer, this one should be the biggest blow, hopefully it's all tailwinds from here.
Trying to keep the graphic stuff out of the way so I have given you fair warning.
