Hello all fellow bikers,
I am fortunate enough to be part of this group. Even though I did not participate much in any of the events, I have been closely following with you. I am in regular contact with LB nagar gang of HBC.
I do have couple of queries:
1. I have a Schwinn Sporterra 2012 hybrid, which I bought early this year (its not even one year). I must have rode about 1000km already. I usually do short distances and some times commute (about 50km two way). The problem with this bike is that the derailleur hangar is breaking and is very expensive. Its only bike affair that can order these from some where in Europe. I do not think any one else in Hyderabad or India has these. Let me know if you have any idea where else I can get them from. Bike affair is too far for me (about 40 km).
2. I am not sure why is the its hanger that is breaking every time, the first time, its only while shifting gear it broke. There was nothing bad that was done. The second time it was only when I had taken the bike over a small gutter and when the bike had shaken a bit and I too fell down and had minor injury. I heard good reviews about this bike, but its broke twice within a year at the same place. Is it me, or the bike which is causing the trouble here?
Any ideas to help me here? Thank you.
