    Hangers - 3 broken in 6 months

    I ride a RockHopper - anywhere I can, not always road or firetracks

    3 Hangers in 6 months - I am just unlucky ?

    The first - I think I was 'attacked' by a stick from one side - fair enough
    The second - long grass - didn't expect it
    The third - No idea, a track with a twig or two - it is autumn after all.

    Is there any protection out there ?

    Last one was really fustrating 'cos I had a spare hanger and tools - but hey ho
    Specialized have changed the hanger from the 05 to 06 RockHopper

    Repaired - with new style Hanger - better doesn't have 2 midget bolts!

    No damage to chain guide on rear Derailleur, but the gear itself had wrapped and gone passed its own very small stop guard.

    Oddly, it actually bent the frame -

    I was only doing about 2 mph up a hill !
