Debt is the problem...that and the way it traps you in pointless energy sapping work. If your interested check out David greebers book 'debt, a history'. Also you might find this essay on pointless work interesting..

Re: I broke my sunrace mech extender... What replacement options...???

Glad it worked :-bd Also worth noting that if you go 11speed in the future the mech will still work as its the same cable pull, I use mine with 11 speed rs685 and works perfectly :cool: Thanks :) have to say for a £50 mech it shifts great.

Hi Tony

If that doesn't pan out, I have a couple of Gorilla Cages complete with straps, unused in original packaging.

If Tony doesn't want them I'd be interested in the gorilla cages?

Re: I broke my sunrace mech extender... What replacement options...???

I've got the grx400 on a 40t cassette with no extender, and it works perfectly. It is on a 1x setup though...but should be fine on 2x as shimano are always conservative with range compatability and it's only a 4 tooth increase. Nice to have a clutch mech too. I can confirm the grx400 rear mech work...

Re: I broke my sunrace mech extender... What replacement options...???

10 speed or 9? If you are on 9 then try and acquire a non shadow rear mech (as in the old style ones). The top jockey wheels are slightly offset which allows them to work fine with a 40. No clutch but no issue if you are using a thick/ thin chainring. Sadly a 10 speed... And a 2x (46/30)....I think...

Yes I've just been reading about poeple using the grx400 without and extender and getting it to work with 42t sprockets. Some people have said that could be done with the tiagra mech but I couldn't get it to work....I might try the grx without the extender before I shell out the £20 for the wolf too...

So yesterday I broke my sunrace gear hanger extender on my drop bar gravel bike. The rear mech got dragged into the spokes by mud and twisted it, snapping the extender that I was using. I have a 11-40 cassette and was using a sunrace extender (like Woolf tooth) to get my tiagra mech to work with the...

For me it’s this: Hammocking is an activity in it’s own right. If I want to sleep in a hammock I’ll organise a trip around it. If I just want to go on a trip, I’ll ground sleep as it’s way more convenient, lighter and simpler. Whilst it’s true to point out that hammocks can to some places a bivi ca...
