    Broken spring on Chorus 11-speed front derailleur

    I've been running a Chorus 11-speed groupset for about 18 months, maybe 7K miles, when the spring on the front derailleur broke.

    Curious how common a failure mode is this? Never really heard of one of these breaking before so now I'm concerned about the overall reliably of the whole groupset.

    The spring itself or the retainer clip on the cage? I had the later happen on my 2015 Chorus rig.

    Yes, turned out it was the retainer clip. Good call.
