    flexible derailleur housing

    Howdy all,
    What is a good flexible/durable der housing? I have a Chumba XCL and the rear der housing keeps cracking where it passes the seat tube. This is where the motion from the suspension bends it. I've been using XT and generally need to replace it each year. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    You should be updating/replacing inner and outer at least every 6 months or so anyhow - 1 year is an extraordinary time for this to last.
