hello to all

and thanks in advance for the help.

i would really appreciate your help in finding an online store that sells those rear derailleur protectors? They are essentially a thick metal rod that covers the entire rear derailleur and protects it in case of a side fall.

thanks so much

my email is [email protected]

Why????

Why the hell would you need that? A solution to a non-problem. Who cares if you scratch you POS $70 rear derailleur. Just ride man! i'd worry more about a broken derailleur hanger than i would scratchin' up rear the derailleur... Learn to ride without bangin' the damn thing. find some kids bike and steal it! or ask nicely they may just give it to ya! :D

40bux for that sh!t...I can get 2 used 105's for that money. (sorry for my ghetto mentality ;))
i'm with via on this one... just get a smaller derailleur, or stop riding your bike.... it sucks worrying about your parts (that should be the last thing that you should worry about)

Wondering who's acting like a rich kid (and retaded at that) ......... is it the one trying to find a way to prtect the derailleur because maybe he doesn't have the money to buy a new one or is it the @ss saying .... trash and buy a new one ....;

Some people have some issues with their relation to money on this forum.....

im by all means not a rich kid or a kid at all . i worked hard for what bikes i own. my point was that by the time you actual bash your rear der to make it fall off a 50$ der is all u need to replace it. Deralurs can actualy take a beating... just buy a few 10$ der hangers. the ones that are suposed to bend or break before you trash your deralure. ither its me or ive been lucky cuz ive never broken a rear deralure, just scuffed em up a bit.

....u tryin to start sumthin?.......

phs, problems with relation to money, the protector is a fvckin waste of money. only a tool whos paranoid about every component breaking would ever need one :rolleyes:
chainguide, downtube, and fork guards actually serve a purpose.............

so a company comes out with covers for ur seat that keep em dry and clean and "it costs less than a new seat" (but is a total waste of money) would u buy one?

not trash it and buy new, more like ride and buy when breaks

I kind of disagree with everyone. I of thought about getting one that I see on childrens bikes. We ride around a lot of rocks. I use to get my cable loop (XTR) pulled off all the time. Now with Sram I don't worry about that.

Now protecting the derailer....Something more as a deflector, than an extra way to hold the derailer on.....just my .02

Those are bolted into the fender eylets, and only designed for protection during SHIPPING, not crashes. The store is supposed to remove them before sale, as with the little plastic "mushroom caps" on the ends of the axle bolts.

The annonymity of the internet is a terrible thing.

You're all so quick to rip on this kid for asking a question. So the F what if he's a "NOOB".

A lot of you should think about spending more time riding, and less time typing.
