Thumbs down Tcams unfortunate event

Well After waiting a while to get my bike running with Jims new engine mount and sprocket adapter I finally got my bike running really good after a few fixable problems.

A few days ago I was comming back from a ride around town and my chain popped off out of no where.
. When I got home and inspected my bike I had noticed that one of the screws that holds my sprocket to the clamp was gone. Also I had lost a screw that holds the front clamp of Jims mount to the downtube. The threads in the adapter are pretty stripped so I dont think I will be able to use the adapter and what not.

Also when the screw came loose that holds the sprocket it took some of my derailer with it. its not that bad but I just dont know how long until its gonna crack.

I dont know what to do at this point. Should I get a new bike and start fresh?

Hey Jim (creative Engineering) If I were to get a new frame could I send the clamps from my mount back to you and could you give me new clamps that will fit the new bike?
