All set for a lovely ride on my newly (but not new) cobbled together Fetish 1×9 CX bike this morning.
24 degrees, clear roads – ready for action! About 4 miles in, I started getting all kinds of weird noises out of the drive-train. [Not to be confused with the ball bearing noise coming from my stem that the boy’s at Ben’s dropped in when they ran the cables for me (heee- heee- heee…).]
After about 3 bizarre dropped chain incidents, I thought I just had some cable stretch and it was figured out. Tweaked the rear derailleur and attempted a hill climb: then the al Qaeda Dura Ace bomb went off!
This never happens on my single speeds…
For Sale: Slightly used Dura Ace rear derailleur – some minor wear.
Wanted: Used derailleur that can get up a hill or 2. Cheap.
