Bike ponces only welcome if they don't speak in tongues
Out on a ride on New Years Day, riding along all very well, when I suddenly thought that the gears seemed to be slipping, the next thing, a bang, back wheel locks up and I start sliding sideways, managed to control it and unclip.
Checked the bike, chain snapped, rear derailluer snapped in 2, rear mech hanger disappered, spokes lost and wheel bent.
Ok so I have had a look at replacing certain bits and getting the wheel mended and question I have is as it seems to be quite expensive, can I not bother with a rear mech or hanger, put it 1 gear and use like a single speed, but still use the 2 rings at the front?
Have just stripped the half of the hanger thats left, off the bike and you can't clamp the wheel back in place without it, but, that said the hanger is def a replaceable part. Got to go to a giant dealer to get one.
