Check out the stress marks on this bent derailleur hanger. Good idea to get a spare hanger (specific to your frame) before you need one.

We hope they never stop reinventing the wheel. Rim brake track designed for high temperatures, carbon tubeless, fits 25c to 50c (yes, 50!!). 1,455g. Avion R Pro. @stansnotubes

Remember to keep cool and stay hydrated. That Strava KOM/QOM isn’t worth putting your health at risk!
Saurabh, one of our ‘fittees’, was all smiles at the Ironman Boulder! Big congrats on your accomplishment!#ironmanboulder #ridebikesandsmile
