    XT M772 repair parts?

    Does anyone have a source for a replacement cage for an XT M772 rear der? An unfriendly stick had its way with mine this evening

    I tried looking for a B-Axle mount online and was not terribly successful. I called Shimano and they gave me the name of few dealers locally who I could call and they ordered it locally. I'd recommend getting a price first, it may wind up being almost as expensive as replacing the entire derailleur. I'd be interested in hearing how you make out.

    After searching the web and talking to two LBS, I'm not very optimistic. One LBS looked at his catalog and said he couldn't get it. He opined that the reason is if you have subjected the derailleur to enough force to bend the cage, there is probably damage to other parts of the mechanism, and if you want it to run 100% you'll end up replacing the whole thing any way. Crap!

    Check it. If not damaged anything else, ask him to look into the parts bin. many shimano cages are compatible.
