    broken rear carbon derailleur

    broken rear carbon derailleur-%25tlb7qftt2u%25kpgbp25rna.jpg

    The outside carbon part of my Centaur rear derilleur broke in half and the chain got jammed and I almost went down. I have campy on all of my bikes and this is the first time something like this has happened before. Anyone else seen this happen? Just glad I did not go down and the only damaged items are the derailleur and chain that need to be replaced.

    Fell in a group ride in April this year resulting in a fractured scapula requiring surgery and internal fixation. Glad that did not happen again.

    It has been known to happen, frequently enough that Campagnolo sells the "rod" as a replacement part for SR, R, and Chorus.

    I did notice replacement parts were available as listed above. Unfortunately, the rear hanger is bent on mine and also since Centaur, parts not available. Not sure I would repair that anyway, time to replace. I did order a new Potenza 11speed to put on there to run with the 10sp cassette, as I may upgrade it to 11 in the future. The is a Cervelo R3-SL with a mixture of parts from other bikes.

    Update if anyone cares. Replaced the rear der with Campy 11speed Potenza and it works great. I did have to replace the chain as well as it was twisted when the Centaur der broke. Used 10sp chain and it still is smooth and shifts great.
