so I fitted a brand new x7 mech and went and rode cut gate where it unfortunately suffered one or two slight rock incidents.
I didn’t think too much of it until I took the bike to Wharnecliffe and after a very slight knock the mech snapped around the bolt and fell off the bike.
bizarrely there was no damage to the mech hanger.
has anyone else had this happen? I just ordered a new one but I’m wondering if I should have bought some shifters and gone back to Shimano
Think X7 is SRAM’s ‘undiscovered’ groupset. I have a short-cage X7 mech on the Chucker and it has survived a number of direct hits. It is visibly misaligned but still shifts OK.
I must have just got unlucky I reckon. most of my mechs have big gouges out of them, I just never had one snap around the bolt before so I figured I would check to see if it is a known problem.
The topic ‘x7 mech – anyone else snapped one?’ is closed to new replies.
