    Shimano XT Shadow+ hanger HELP!

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if the hanger on the Shimano Zee rear mech is compatible with a Shimano XT Shadow+ rear mech?

    I currently own the Shimano Zee, with hanger. But i want to change it for a Shimano XT Shadow Plus rear mech. As i'm on a budget the cheapest option i can find the XT mech for comes without the hanger (intended for direct mount i suppose)

    So, will the hanger be interchangeable?

    (See image attached to help explain)

    Shimano has them listed as not interchangeable.
    From what I recall the hanger of a XT RD-M8000 is thicker when compared to the hanger of a Zee RD-M640.

    That looks like a RD-M786 to me. If so, the bracket for the 786 is compatible with the Zee 640, but it depends which Zee model you got. If you have the one for 28t "downhill", then no. If you have the 36t "freeride", then yes.
