Just broke a chain tensioner in Whistler. Looks like I'll be going back to gears. Really Mad

Ive broken more frames than anything else I think. Im up to 5 and this latest might not last the summer.

rear mech hangers dont last long around me either.

Something hit it and it got a little out of alignment. I kept riding on it and now it's useless.

THey cost $80, and I have my deraileur sitting in my garage. I used it on a DH bike, not a DJ/ Street bike.

Spokes, tires, rims, brake cables and cranks. Slope and street take a toll for me on these parts.

But wasn't that a under 4lb custom made frame? Eek Razz

Anyway,

Ive done incredibly well this year, so far:
Bent pedal spindles x3
Few spokes here and there
& now on my third chain this year due to breaking/bending issues Blank Stare
And second set of tires.
