As if singlespeeders needed another reason to feel superior, this happened to me today:
Luckily, that's a very popular Specialized derailleur hanger. Unlike last time I did this, it appears I broke the derailleur, too. I broke the old Dura Ace derailleur on my technium in the fall and bent the hanger (steel frame) and I still have got around to realigning the frame. Anybody want to let me borrow their alignment tool?
I have a replacement old XTR derailleur and a replacement old Dura Ace, but they're getting harder and harder to find. I need to be more careful.
