This is getting expensive. On race day at the gravity enduro I noticed my gears weren't running right at the start of the first transition and noticed the mech was bent to the point it could not select the top two gears. The previous days bog fest I considered to blame and got through the day unhindered considering what was going on behind. New identical mech was fitted after a few days. After two dry rides this new on is also now bent in the same way, just not as bad but will not obviously shift the gears properly. I have fitted on an old road mech and the old X7 mech I was using, both 100% straight still and I also fitted my spare mech hanger. Again 100%.
So it leaves me thinking two mechs that either have a design flaw or I have just been really unlucky.
Any thoughts/heard this issue before?
The bike is a Foxy RR, all tight and straight and no outstanding issues there.
As I say, it's getting expensive as I will have to get a new one asap as the Inners round is two weeks away. I hope the Shimano van is at this round as I need to show them two freshly twisted mechs.....
I have been riding some 25 years now and have done my time in various workshops, didn't crash with these fitted and I am a pretty light rider.
