I bought a VISC 18 and guess what?....yep, Neo 9 derailure snapped off today

I don't mind giving the Neo a good run however my main concern with buying the visc 2013 model was whether the frame mount would allow a std derailure. But you mentioned earlier that you sell adaptors that would allow it, right?.
Thanks for all the advice Btw. I checked out your site...it's awesome. We need something like it in Oz for foldies.
So, it lasted 6mths. I've never broken a Sram or Shimano derailure it about 35yrs of biking (triathlon, MTBing etc). But today, taking off from the traffic lights I used large chainring on front and 2 or 3 cogs down on the rear cassette. Snap! The derailure broke in two.
Anyway, enough about that. I'm now in the market to modify my Dr Hon Visc 18 (which I love BTW) to take a Shimano 105 derailure. Anyone know where I can get the rear bracket to allow me to mount one of the more standard, higher quality components?
Thanks in advance.
Dr Hon - epic fail! :-(
