Born to Ride
I have an 03 Banshee Scream. In the past 2 months or so, I have broken 3 rear derailers. (Shimano Deore) I cannot figure out why it is happening. They are not hitting on rocks, all three have broke when landing from a jump, two have been pretty small jumps, so I don’t think it is the impact of the landing that is doing it. I can go big with no problems. It completely rips the derailer apart and usually kinks my chain up, it almost seems like it is snagging my rear wheel and getting ripped off. It bends my dereailer hanger also and one of the times it ripped the derailer right out of the hanger. I just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on why this was happening and if this was a common problem with screams? Do I just need to run a different derailer? It seems like there is something else wrong though. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
