    Most Durable Derailleur

    What is the most durable deraileur out there?

    I've riding a lot recently up to 15 hours a week of intense singlestrack in the new england and I have gone through about Deore LX deraileur a month since the riding season started. THe derailleur will just wear down and pretty much feel like its falling apart on its own. THe pulley cage gets very loose, it gets bent.. beside from the dropout. I'm a smart rider and don't necesarily thrash my gear just to thrash it. Where can I find something that will last me an entire season?

    Upgrade to Saint, if you dont wanna spend the money on that, Deore is about your best choice, its cheap and works. The shorter the cage the less likely your gonna hit it as well.

    Do I need a special saint hub to use the saint derailleur?

    you need a saint axle, not necessarily the saint hub.
