my boy got gifted a boardman mountain bike last year, some carbon fibre one , i think it was 2012 manufactured. anyways , it was in really good nick and he loves it, but one of his mates had a go on it the other day and fell off. ive had a quick look at it as i dont really know too much about bikes tbh, but the rear derailleur looks bent, and on the wheel hub part, the fixing for it has snapped. atm he has a SRAM X9 derailleur (9 Speed) on it, but i cannot find one of these anywhere. i was wondering if anybody knew if there was a straight swap compatible part that we could buy to get it changed over? or any other ideas to get him on the road again?
sorry for the essay, hope to hear from you guys soon
