    Help w/ Wife's Bike

    I let my teenage son borrow my wife's bike and of course he crashed and broke the rear derailleur. Does anyone have an X5 or better SRAM 9 speed long cage derailleur laying around that they could let go at a reasonable price? I don't want to spend a pile of cash on the wifes bike since it sees so little trail time.

    Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to use any 8/9 speed derailure you find online (SRAM specific). I assume you have SRAM shifters on this bike, so you need SRAM specific derailure for the pull length. What sort of price range are you looking for, because I'd think the following are pretty good for what they are.
