    Shimano X7 rear derailleur cage pulled out while riding

    Hi All,

    I have a quite new Shimano X7 rear mech (50-100 miles on it), and while I was riding yesterday, my bike made a loud noise and then all chain tension was gone. When I looked down, my derailleur cage had detached from the rest of my derailleur and was just sitting on its own on the chain. Is this fixable, or do I need to buy a new derailleur? I wasn't doing anything crazy, so I really feel that this shouldn't have broken.

    Thanks!

    Yep, get a new Sram X7. The Shimano X7 was never really that reliable.

    Dammit, that's embarrassing... I have no idea why I said Shimano.
