How do I choose a replacement derailleur?

When buying a new rear derailleur be sure to match it with your drivetrain 'speed'. 10-speed drivetrains use narrower chains than 9-speed so you'll need a mech to match. Most rear mechs are made of a polymer and alloy mix but you'll find carbon fibre in top-end models to shave even more weight.

How often should you replace derailleur?

3 Answers. Derailleurs will last almost indefinitely. The jockey wheels will wear out in time (tens of thousands of km) but the rest of the mechanism shouldn't see significant wear.

Is it easy to replace a rear derailleur?

Believe it or not, it's not difficult to replace the rear derailleur yourself. Before replacing a "bent derailleur" make sure it's not just the derailleur hanger! First, remove the idler pulley -- that's the bottom pulley of the derailleur. ... Take the end cap off the cable, and draw the cable through the derailleur.

Is SRAM better than Shimano?

Market Share. Currently SRAM are dominating the high-end market, while Shimano service more of the entry-level to mid-range enthusiast segments. In the aftermarket sector the gap is closer between the two, especially at the high-end and flagship level.

Can I use an 11 speed derailleur on a 10 speed cassette?

the 10 speed and 11 speed derailleurs are interchangeable as far as the shifters go, the difference is that a 10 speed derailleur doesn't like a cassette cog much bigger than the 36t it was designed for, where the 11 speed derailleurs are designed for 40 and 42t cogs, and seem to be able to handle bigger.

Why does my chain slip when I pedal hard?

Most of the time, a skipping chain is caused by cable stretch. In the first half dozen rides on a new bike your shift cables stretch the most. They can also stretch over time as you ride. Hippley explains, β€œIt takes cable tension to open a derailleur, which shifts your chain between gears.

How much does it cost to service a bicycle?

β€œ Depending on your area, the average bike tune-up costs anywhere between $60 and $100. Most shops offer two options – A Minor/Basic Tune-up that costs $55 to $89 and a Major Tune-up that typically costs between $119 and $150. Cost often depends on the services included in the tune-up.

If you clean your drivetrain often, esp after dirty rides, they will last years. I only ever replaced these on bikes I rode daily for 4 or 5 years. Once just to get some trick aluminum pulley wheels but they wore out fast.
