rear detailleur on trek 4400 2008 model

Postby spjd » Sun Jul 21, 2013 23:19 pm

Some bampot has stripped my bike of its
rear mech, bending the chain in the process.
Coupled with this there is what appears to be a snapped tooth on the 4th cog on the cassette. (8speed)

Can't remember the component name to source a replacement.

I'm seeking any advice to keep costs down as I can't afford the 100 quid the local lbs is likely to charge.

I'm used to servicing the bike myself and would be happy to try to repair mysef but my difficulty lies in sourcing compatible components 7,8 9 speed etc.

All advice appreciated.

S.

Tbh any mech of the same make as your shifters will do. 7 or 8 or 9 spd will work.

The cassette will have teeth of different length to aid shifting, may not be broken at all.

What shifters SRAM X range need SRAM Mechs, SRAM named/MRX work with Shimano mechs.

Thanks. Should I replace the cassette any way if I am to renew the chain and rear mech?
I'm grateful for your help.

Depends on how worn the parts were, check the chain you have left, if wear is low, then no, if yes, well probably (I'd just put a chain on and try it!) Rear mech not relevant.
