I'm sure it's great on the hills
The Ebike thread is down the hall.
Funny, I just got a survey from IMBA amd one question was about conflict with E-Mtn bikes. I've yet to see one around here but it's been awhile since I've been out on our regular trails.
Picked up this BOB Yak for $25. Had to make a bracket since my fat bike's axle is too high and the tire too big in diameter but works great.
On today's ride up the Arahura Valley, ponamu (jade) capital of New Zealand:
I climbed some of the side tracks, just exploring and found these amazing boulders:
Not mine but they look fast standing still. So glad to have finally visited the location; bet Mike recognizes it, um unless they've remodeled

I see your broken derailleur hanger and raise you a twisted chain, bent/broken spokes, as well as apocalyptic levels of bike-destroying Kansas mud at mile 11/200...
You sure are thorough!
If yer gonna be stupid, ya better be tough
He is that.
Consistency is a virtue, right? For whatever that's worth.
I'm sure this has been up before but here is my coffee bike as I built it for flat Onterrible.
This is the fixie I had when I was on tour with Cirque in Taipei, fun as shit riding in Taipei traffic! I have since put a similar bar on my coffee bike to help with the hills around home.
Here is the new-to-me bike. 2014 Yeti BigTop (ARC 29er)
If your shop charges you $200 for a derailleur hanger you need a new shop.
Some days the problem is finding one. It's getting hard to get '09 VP Tracer hangers and unfortunately those ones are super wimpy and break easy. I've been through 3 or 4.
$28 for the new hanger, and yes, it's really cheap cast aluminum. I might buy two. I was figuring $200 when it looked like the whole derailleur was twisted in the spokes. Once I got it home and disassembled it, the derailleur still looks good.
You might try contacting NorthShoreBillet. That's where I sourced my last two hangers, as I was tired of the pot-metal bending under even the slightest touch... yes, the hanger is a sacrificial part, but it should still be stiff enough to withstand the occasional bump without deforming (common on my old CAAD frame).
