[Dahon Vitesse D8] Rear derailleur snapped
Last March I bought a brand new Dahon Vitesse D8 and this morning, whilst I was cycling, the rear derailleur (NEOS 8 SPEED, DAHON SPECIAL EDITION) snapped in two. I would like to replace it with a better one (my budget is max £80). Any suggestion?
At the moment I am thinking cycle with no rear derailleur removing 7/8 chain links using a middle gear. Can I do that?
I know that probably I have to buy a sort-of adapter if I want to use a Shimano derailleur. Is it true?
