Half way into the day and my client’s mech hanger snapped off. He was “just riding along”. I split the chain, got the mech off, shortened the chain and singlespeeded his bike. Couple of cable ties to tidy away the gear cable and we were able to carry on for another 3 hours.

Luckily we were working on technical descending, berms and cornering skills rather than climbs. Sweet and neat.
