    take a picture of the bike from the back down the chain line and post it up, it should be fairly obvious if it’s the mech or the hanger.

    I’m betting the hanger.

    So last week I killed an old XT rear mech. I say killed, it really just died of old age and started flopping about. It owed me nothing.
    This weeks night ride I seem to have killed either a four week old SLX one or bent the hanger. Now I have not yet looked at the problem other than a cursory glance, but which is more likely from a stick/mech/wheel interface:

    Bent mech hanger. Nothing I could see with the naked eye at the time.

    Bugered Mech.

    Symptoms being a loss of indexing with not being able to get it sorted inside the socially allowable group ride timescale.

    Is currently in the huffy corner of the garage awaiting a spare bit of time. My bet is on the most expensive permutation whatever that may be.
