Last weekend on the Family ride my Derailleur hanger broke, and while I got to enjoy a long walk back to the truck, I was still disappointed because I had wanted to rip some single track with the young gentlemen we were riding with. I was told that at the top of Missing Link the boys took off and no one saw them again until the trail head, but I digress... to day my new hanger arrived in the mail and it is now back on the bike. I put on the hanger and derailleur, adjusted every thing and did a little wheel truing. I am back in business!!!!
So much trouble for such a little part!!!
Ready to roll....
My advice to everyone is to buy a spare and keep it in your pack, it might save you some walking and let you enjoy the rest of your ride!
