    Cheap a$$ frame/derailleur...

    i am so pissed off. i went on an easy ride today at the local trails, legend park, and i was just showing my friend around some of the trails. we were going down a little downhill/single track section and i guess that my derailleur got caught in my spokes and it totally got twisted and ripped all the way up and off of my rear swingarm. not only was the derailleur fcuked up, but i also happen to have a lame khs frame where the derailleur bolts straigt onto the frame... so that piece of the frame is also bent. so now i need a new frame and deraileur.

    you might be able to get the frame tweaked back with a certain tool. i know my bike shop has one.

    i'd also check your spokes too.

    AHAHA we've got one too at our shop; it's called the "***" tool..or the Frame Alignment Guide. I'm not sure if it's callled that by all shops, but it certainly is at ours.

    Did you get to try any of the drops at Hucksville before your little accident?
    If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much space.

    nah, we rode the lower trails and then we were riding the upper trails, and then i was planning on coming back down and doing some of the hucks... but as you can see that happened. a couple of days ago i was riding when the screws that hold the 'face-plates' together on the derailleur came out and the 'face-plate' got caught in my spokes. and that bent my frame a little bit. i guess just enough to make going over a root push my derailleur even more into my spokes. but i guess i will just start taking everything off of the frame and start selling some things to buy a new bike. i guess that it is going to be a long time before i can ride again.

    buy a cheap hardtail and ride and save for a good rig. something like a 04 hardrock or something cheap but decent. then save up for a better bike, or you could just save and not buy a bike.

    Maybe referring to the DAG.

    Derailleur Alignment Guage, though his carnage almost looks worthy of a frame alignment...LOL! The DAG is probably one of the most used Park tool in most shops.
