Derailleur Failure

If you’re at all familiar with the general concept of a bicycle, you’ll know that the derailleur gear shifter on the real wheel should not find itself in a position where it is bent back upwards into the real wheel spokes, locking up the wheel, snapping the chain and causing the user to suddenly stop in the middle of busy Borough Junction.

If you find this unusual situation has occurred – please take it to your local bicycle repair shop where they will charge ‘quite a lot’ to fit a new mech, mech holder, cassette, chain and to re-true the wheel.

And it’s not like I didn’t have a million bloody punctures last week either….grr!
