    Mech hanger woes :(

    Hi All,

    Happy new year to you all, hope you had an enjoyable break over the festive period!

    Had a misshap on Saturday, did in the mech hanger, snapped my X0 rear mech, f00ked the chain and bent the cassette to death. I wont be buying X0 again unless its repairable as its an absolute heartbreaker The mech hanger (Dropout) is bent in towards the cassette pretty badly as you'll see in the pics!

    Anyone know if this is likely to snap if i try and straighten it?

    Also whats the best method to try and do it?

    Richard @ Gravity Sports is getting me a replacement but in the meantime i wondered if there was a temp fix i could do?

    Cheers guys,

    Derek

    as i told you - lots of heat, a vice and some soft jaws, as well as a tap, and it'll do as a spare !
    now ride faster and keep out the heather in future !
