Hello guys, The rear derailleur (6 speed) on my bike (picture attached) shattered all of a sudden while biking uphill after a few months of problems with the chain not fitting immediately on the cassette when I shift gears.
The derailleur's mark is Simplex (made in France). Could you please guide me as to whether I should replace it with a Simplex or can I go with Shimano or something else? what are the characteristics I should be looking for when buying the new derailleur.
Thank you for getting back to me and for taking into account that I am a first-time bike owner (no experience in parts and repairs)
