    Front Derailer Spring Help

    I was cleaning and lubing my bike today and noticed the spring on my front derailleur was kind of unwrapped. The wire is wrapped twice around the post and then a few inches is sticking out a few inches and then there is a hook. My front derailleur is a shimano slx. How can I fix it?

    I am trying to upload photos of it, but my camera is acting up at the moment. I will A.S.A.P.

    In the meantime, do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I bent the wire/spring back. Works great on the stand, now to test it on the local trails!
