    Cassette Issue

    Sorry - if this is the wrong forum/subforum but I have this problem where my derailleur (SRAM X9) will not go down to the smallest cog even though I adjusted the screw to it's fullest. Any ideas. First time issue for me and I've changed out at least 4 derailleurs and only God knows how many cassettes. Tx in advance!!!

    ?

    Just to be sure - you mean loosen the rear derailleur cable and allow the derailluer to settle in at the lowest cog?

    Tried that...maybe you mean something else?

    Add a washer to move the RD outboard a bit.

    This. SRAM derailleurs dont seem to agree with steel frames and I've always had to put a 10mm washer up underneath the hanger bolt in order to properly adjust the high limit screw.

    I think the return spring runs out of travel.
