Bike Skills Project – Episode 7 – Bent Derailleurs (on the trail fix)

Excuse the purple haze

Basically, be smart about your derailleur function. Know the basics of cable tension (we will cover this soon) and how the alignment works/relies on the alignment of that hanger and derailleur

Use caution when bending, most of the force/torque should go through the allen key-multi tool.

If your at home take it to a shop or use a proper ‘Derailleur alignment tool’
