    The upside is now it rides like new.
    i'm in the shop too with the annual drive train repair/replacement. also found a small hairline crack on the chainstay web. looks like a non-critical reinforcement area so gonna ride her til she blows or until vacation in late july

    Snapped dérailleur hanger #3 this season roughly 3.5 miles into tonights ride. Had a spare with me but the one that snapped was wedged on so tight I couldn't get it off. Instead of fighting it I simply swallowed my pride, took the chain off, strapped the dérailleur out of harms way and coasted the best I could back to the car.

    Wow, you're having some really bad luck with hangers this year! I'm not even sure where my spare one is anymore....

    been there - that sucks. my 07 jamis xam has a serious hanger design flaw, i went through 4 one season, then switched to a beefier cnc'd after market hanger and have been good to go or over a year (prolly jinxed now)

    if your using the bike manufacturers hangers try derailleurhangers.com or vice versa...

    Can't beleive I'm back posting another casualty so quickly but roughly 1.5 miles into to todays ride I some how managed to break my rear shifter assembly off the handlebars. After a minute or so of WTF I ended up finishing the 8+ mile ride basically with one gear. None the less after a quick post ride trip down to Bikers Edge for a new Shifter assembly I'm back in business and ready to roll tomorrow am.

    I'm surprised I haven't broke mine yet, especially on the hills hoping I have another granny gear left to shift into only to find I am already in it!

    Front fork, ended up being sent back to Fox, hopefully will see it in a few weeks.

    Until then I'll be keeping it real on this again!
