Haha, that is a great hack! I once used a rock in the same type of situation, to space the front derailer away from the frame after the cable broke. I added a piece of bark between the rock and frame so I wouldn't scratch the paint. :) Worked well enough for the moment!

I've also used a likely-shaped stick to put atop a seatpost in place of a broken saddle. That hack allowed my friend to sit on the stick (crosswise, mind you) so he could pedal back out of the canyon into which we'd descended. He said it was a lot better than walking out!


Nice one!
