I have an XT Shadow+ derailleur RD-M786 on my Trance X29er 0. On the last ride I somehow managed to bend the derailleur beyond repair, however the aluminium hanger remains straight. I have bent hangers before, and they are usually accompanied with a bit of noise when the the offending object is dragged in. This time there was no noise just all of a sudden it stopped changing smoothly, upon inspection I noticed the derailleur was bent.
Has anybody else experienced these shadow + derailleur's bending before the hanger does? This is going to become expensive if I have to replace these every time I catch a stick.
