I was super excited to use my derailleur hanger adjustment tool this weekend. My RD was off and touching the spokes a little on the big cog. It was resistant, so I pulled a little harder. I freakin broke my cast aluminum derailleur hanger.
So, now I am flummoxed-- can we actually bend an aluminum hanger at all? Fortunately, I had a spare, and it is straight.
Yes, you can, but every time it gets bent it becomes a little bit damaged. If youâ€™ve done it a few times or is bent too far it can break.
Aluminum doesnâ€™t really like being bent. Which reminds me, I should really go and pick up some spare hangers for my mountain bike before they arenâ€™t available anymore. Thatâ€™s one of the things that annoy me, thereâ€™s no standard replaceable derailleur hanger.
