" Although I was fairly pleased with this mech I had a small crash and it broke straight away. A lot of it is comprised of plastic. I was least happy because this came as standard with my newly purchased careera valour, which is a lovely bike except for this component. My previous bike, a careera Vulcan had no such problems as it came fitted with the sram x4, an all over much better mech. I have now switched the broken mech for my old x4 which runs brilliantly. "
