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!
