Rear Derailleur finally bit the dust!

My rear derailleur finally died. I think I have to stop riding the game trails in the Upper Paugussett SF because I think that is part of my problem with breaking the rear hanger for the second time. This time I was half way through my ride and had to choose between going back by way of Sanford Road or continue up the back of the hill in the forest and cost down the Polly Brody. I chose the coasting ride.

Took the AC in to the shop and decided to have a Shimano LX rear derailleur put on because its supposed to beefier and more forgiving in the abuse department. Also decided to go with a medium cage in order to get more clearance.

Derailleur works great.
