It been three two months now that I have been riding my ETSX-90. I love the ride but I am having some really huge problems with the drivetrain.
Three weeks ago I did an endo and noticed that I was getting some ghost shifting afterwards. Did some adjustements and things went better. An hour later I stopped to for a quick break and after starting again I managed to get 10 feet before the derailleur went into the wheel. The derailleur hanger was bent, the cage of the derailleur was toast. Looking at the chain it was about to go off the large cog on the cassette but not quite. The dreailleur cage was in the spokes, the chain was super tight. So tight that it was impossible to move anything or take the wheel off. I took it to my shop and they say that the derailleur hanger must have gotten hit and shifting onto the large cog put it into the wheel. Ok, new hanger, new derailleur.
Last week I did a 73k race and things were perfect. It shifted like butter, super. A couple of day ago, after a good washing and post race inspection,I went off on my weekly night ride with my club. A good 10k of riding with super fine shifting again. then it happenned. I climbed to the top of a hill in the middle gear in the front and the large cog in the back. No problems at all. Got to the top of the hill and we decide to turn left instead of right. I got off and turned the bike around, got back on and pedaled 10 feet before the derailleur got sucked into the spokes again. Same senario as last time. No hits, no branches.
Any ideason how this coul be happening??
