    Well Heres Your Problem... (lol)(pics)

    Well I was riding today at Thomson. Was going down hill, went to bunny hop a root, landed in a small rock bed type thing and the R.D caught the spoke and this is what happend... had to carry the bike out.

    The hanger. deraillur, and 2-3 spokes are screwed.
    Someone I know though is willing to give me his old Deore, so it'll be an upgrade part.

    RIDE HARD! BREAK LOTS! GET DIRTY!
    YEA!

    I don't think new tires would keep this from happening...do you?

    You need to think about more chain tension and high limit screw adjustment. (or a new RD)

    were the gears on your RD rusted on a bike you bought in Jan or just picture glare? Lube the new one.

    That is kind of your friend with the deore, it will make the repairs cheap with only spokes, hanger, and chain

    bummer dude. Feel your pain. Had a branch/limb decide to make my XT RD a two-piece unit once. Nice long hike back to the truck...

    Sounds like you'll be back in business soon though, good deal.

    Just don't take any stickers off your bike and you should be safe from catastrophic failure.

    Yeah. It's a little bit bent. I bet it's because of the LBD's. Wow. That sucks.

    I had stick catch in my chain and biff the hanger in November. Bent the Der. cage too but I took the pulleys out and hammered the plates back into shape. Works like new.


    Usually I carry a chain tool but for some reason I wasn't that day, so I had to coast out. Mostly downhill, just kinda slow. First snow of the year too, so kind of a bad ride.

    I had this happen on a 4300, My first bike. A stick went in the spokes and as it came around it mangled the deraileur and hanger. I just bent it back with my hand as best I could, and rode out. ( I had about three gears) Took it to the shop where I bought it, they straightened the hanger, slapped another cheapo deraileur on it and away I went. They didn't even charge me anything. Hell I even told them a stick got in there. They are a great bunch of guy's. I've been going back ever since!
