    Prophet Derailour hanger problem

    Hi there.
    I got a prophet 800 - 2005. i have it for like 6 months. kick ass bike, love it.
    but i got a problem with the derailour hanger. its the second time it broke.
    both times it bent and i tried to straiten it out and i broke it.
    do you guy have any suggestions appart from not falling on the derailour?

    Assuming you live in the Northern Hemisphere, try riding in the Southern, where everything is opposite (water down the drain rotation, seasons, etc), you'll fall on the non drive side instead of the drive side
    Sorry, couldn't resist. I've got nothing, I guess just be glad you have a hanger, otherwise you'd have replaced frames twice already!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    But then he'd bend his brake rotors...
