    Stick on the road.

    Ripped a spoke through the rim and tore my Derailluer hanger in half. I broke the brakes off yesterday outta the blue and bent the disc.

    The rear derailluer itself could use replacing!


    Here the list of minimum and maxxes for replacement parts.

    You forgot to add the cost of a new derailleur hanger! About $15 to $25.

    Bah! I know your feeling, I've totaled 2 derailleurs and a few derailleur hangars thanks to sticks, but I've never ruined my wheel or spokes. You must've been cruising pretty good.

    I've not only ruined hangers derailleurs and wheels, but due to the timing there of, I crashed hard and destroyed a front wheel, fork and the handlebars were suspect so I swapped those out too. Not to mention the road rash and bruises. Plus I had to walk it out!
