    Derailleur and Dropout snapped!

    I was riding yesterday, and I went off a 2 foot drop and my derailleur got cought in my spokes and got pulled right up and snapped the drop out. How much would a new one cost? I'll try to get pics in if I can.

    Snapped your drop out? New frame.

    However, it's more likely you snapped your derailleur-hanger. Those aren't that expensive.

    How common is it for a derailleur hanger to snap? Should I keep a spare hanger in my camelbak? I'm heading to my LBS to help a friend buy a bike today so I can easily pick one up (assuming he's got it in stock).

    The guy at our LBS called it the "drop out", it's this metal thing that holds the derailleur...

    Sounds like it's just the hanger.

    Yep - carry a spare. Depending on the type, make sure you have a smaller hex-head wrench (allen key) that fits the screws of some hangers with you as well.

    On my yeti, the dropouts are removeable/replaceable, and the hangar is built in. Its really thick and doesnt bend easily at all. Ive never gotten it out of alignment.

    Keeping a spare could be handy indeed! Once I had a stick get through the spokes of my bike and as the wheel turned the stick, it wedge itself on the frame (oposite the derailer), as one side was stationary the other side (derailer side) rotated and caught the derailer and simply swung it back, up, and around the cassette. Needless to say time I had bent it back, to ride back out of the trail, I only had about three gears it could reach!

    hangers run around $20 although since there are so many different tyupes lots on shops will only stock the most common ones for the bikes the sell. I've never carried a spare, althouhg I have bent them before and had to use some different gears. I bent it back once sucessfully, but the second time it bent It snaped.

    The dropout is what the wheel mounts to. In some cases, the hangar and the dropout are the same piece.

    Thats what mine is like. A mechanic at the shop has a friend who is a machinist, and he is looking into making new dropouts that will give us a shorter chainstay!

    I carry a spare. I usually order two at a time. That way I'll always have a spare. They are really light, so carrying it in my Camelback is non noticible. I think I paid like $10 each for mine.
