It’s true. And the catastrophic failures aren’t really resolvable on the trail anyways. E.G. Most derailleur hangers and much more robust/complex so riders don’t carry spares. Single speeding an FS bike to ride out isn’t a thing (never was really a thing with hardtails without sliders either - seen a few folks write off chains for no reason because they read an out there repair article in a magazine years ago). You aren’t field rebuilding a hydraulic disc brake (have done a few lever bleeds for folks using a water bottle though). Sort of like modern cars. They’re either working or they’re not. Still, I’d feel like such a Joey if I couldn’t resolve an issue in the woods after ditching my sometimes stuff.
