- A potentially expensive ride averted
😆 Funnily enought I did when I switched the cam off as I had an overwhelming feeling of social responsibility. I did a few ninja moves on it though to vent my anger before it was last seen disappearing in to a hedge.
I took the mech off and stuck the cable in the stay protector. If I could have been bothered to split the chain which rings should I have set it up on – small (dual chainset) front and middle of the casette at the back?Posted 7 years agodmillerMember
My commuting chain has had three links in it before due to snapage… It was a kmc chain on some chain rings well past the time they should have been replaced… Worked fine. Although it seems a bit off a faff to be ready for a broken hanger. I go through more chains than hangers…Posted 7 years ago
I went out for a ride last night and managed to get a large root that had been cut jammed in the mech. It all happened so quick I didn't have time to stop but this was the aftermath
I think I got off pretty lightly, and it's the first hanger I've totalled in over 20 years on a mountain bike. Whyte hangers seem to do the job they were designed for…phew!Posted 7 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
Yep, mine was on my Stumpjumper, some antisocial heather did for me. Mech hanger sheared, needed a vice to get it off the mech, mech had warped and one of the KCNC jockey wheels had bent. I was right p*ssed off because I had a spare hanger and tools with me but couldn't fix it 👿
New XTR mech, jockey wheels and hanger, over £ 100.Posted 7 years ago
