    Replacing cage on X.9 RD

    So I twisted up my X.9 rear derailleur cage. I don't know how or when it happened, but some trailside "adjustment" with a set of slotted pliers made it rideable for the day.

    Is there any place I can order just the cage (medium) assembly, or am I SOL and have to order the full derailleur?

    Supposedly these things are fully rebuildable, but I can't find anyplace that sells parts other than the pulley/jocky wheels.

    I have never been able to get the cage off the parallelogram on my X.9s. It is supposed to be a bayonette mount (supposedly), but none of mine come apart. Just get a new one.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I'd Check....

    at your LBS in the Quality Bicycle Catalogue.
    They have just about every Shimano and Campy nut, bolt, cage, widget, imaginable so I assume they have SRAM spares as well.

    That sucks.

    Just ordered an 05 X.7 mid-cage off of PricePoint.

    Thanks.

    SRAM's oh-so-wonderful derailleurs only have 1 of the two cages that can be replaced (inner cage/closest to wheel) on everything except the X.0. Who bends 1 plate? Sorry but your SOL.

    I'll stick to my Saint stuff.
