Argh no! You've only gone and broken your mech hanger!
Utter nightmare - hopefully you didn't have too long a walk back to civilisation.
Here's another one to get you up and rolling again. You could even pack a spare to prevent another ride-ending mechanical.
- You hang your rear mech off it...
- Sometimes it breaks off...
- To protect your rear mech...
- And then you buy a new one...
- Nice one.
SizingIt is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the top tube to your crotch this will give you enough seat post adjustment to find your optimum saddle height. Generally we recommend:
- Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in
- Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
- Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
- Riders of 6ft 2in +
