    Stuck derailleur

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for some thoughts on removing my rear derailleur from my frame. I spent the past week in Whislter and it was very wet. I have been unable to remove the derailleur from my hanger as it seems the derailleur has corroded and welded itself to the hanger.

    I have tried WD-40, Liquid Wrench, heat, extra leverage and it won't budge. Any other thoughts or tricks that have worked for you?

    I have an XO derailleur, is the bolt replaceable if I decide to drill it out?

    A long cheater bar?

    I would strip the head before drilling it out (just to make sure) and find a replacement before drilling.
