-Not quite coomber, the mech got tangled in brambles on the last ride, and i thought it looked ok, but obviously wasn't. When i changed into the big cog at the back, it hit something and got stuck on a spoke, ripped it up and round and pulled it out.
bent & twisted hangar, inner thread stripped. I've been told that it might be possible to warm it and bend it back, but if there are any stress fractures it's kaput. The wheel slots in fine, at least so i can SS it as a last resort. Interestingly, the latest shadow (?) mech has a no hangar system on it, so that may be an option if i've got a few hundered quid laying about
-Thank you albash. not bad considering that first pic on page 1 shows you what i got for £40...entered and won my first mtb comp on it last year too. I hope so much that it's recoverable
-thanks Mx, that's kind of what i'm thinking although a little less "Heath Robinson"
will keep you posted when i finally get round to dropping it off at a workshop somewhere
