Rear derailleur mishaps!
Am I the only one who does not get along with the rear derailleurs? This is the 2nd time my rear derailleur got damaged. I took my hybrid on a ride at nearby MTB trail. On my way back, the rear derailleur got tangled with a twig and just bent like butter. The derailleur hanger snapped as well.

I really think i am going to convert my MTB to a single so i can get rid of the rear derailleur, or maybe save up for a hub gear
Share your rear derailleur mishaps, if any!
