Default The Epoxy Repaired Derailleur Hanger Finally Broke

No bike shop. I removed the derailleur with an Allen wrench set from a dollarish store. The floppy chain skipped into other gears and out of gear the entire 16 km 90 min. home.

It took 8 hours to rehydrate.

I found a $15 hanger on Amazon carefully measuring the critical dimensions on the screen.

In the meantime I will be stuck in one gear but at least it won't flip off the free hub.

You're taking an interest in cycling at last?

Same here, as well as a passing interest in engineering repairs.

It would be interesting to see what sort of repair was made to a set of
Derailleurs using Araldite (or whatever).

I'd also like to see how rounded the gear teeth are after 16 km of
constantly changing without a derailleur.

Actually that seems to be ok, noise I haven't figured out and, quite frankly, not interested in figgering out notwithstanding. After all, I never put much force on the drive train for that very reason.

I cringe a lot for more than political reasons.

One bit of encouragement I forgot to tell the UK cyclist doing the Western Hemisphere.

You make a lot of faux pas in life but you'll be lightly forgiven by everyone including yourself if you are young and cycling in another country.

For example, I cycled up some God forsaken mountain in Mexico and was astounded anyone lived up there.

As bad as my Spanish was it was understood, probably because every other visitor said the same thing:

What nut job would want to live up here?

The guy was all upset at the insult but his daughters agreed. They wanted to live in some civilized place.

Moral of the story:

Cycle tourists shouldn't ever say anything bad about a place.
