    RIP 9 Direct Mount Rear Derailleur?

    I have a 2012 RIP 9 with a Shimano shadow XT derailleur. One of my friends recently acquired a new hanger for his bike that allows for the direct mount (essentially removing the B link from the derailleur.) I was not able to find anything online for this, does anyone have an option that they are aware of?

    I'm pretty sure that the direct mount option is only available for the latest version of the bikes that have the newer style hanger. Also, if you bought your XT derailleur in 2012 then it will not work as a direct mount. It might still have a replaceable B knuckle but the dimensions are different than the most current versions of the derailleur that are direct mount compatible.
