I hope his wife found him

I was out riding today and out in the middle of nowhere I saw a fellow cyclist standing on the side of the road with his cell phone. Unfortunately a stick had jumped up into his chain and wound up tearing off the hanging bracket of his rear derailleur. It was a beautiful carbon bike where you could see the carbon weave. He only had it about 3 months and I just hope it's just the hanging bracket and not the frame.

Neither of us had a chain tool-otherwise I could have helped him make it single speed. He was 25 miles from his house and it was at least that far for for me.

He was already on the phone with his wife and I was able to give them directions on how she could get to where he was. There wasn't much else I could do to help so I left him there. Thanks goodness for cell phones!
