    Lapierre Zesty - Rear Derailleur and Thru Axle
    Hi All,

    I bought a Zesty 329 AM which was damaged during shipment. I imagine the rear derailleur needs to be changed - I see that it is a Shimano XT M781 Via.

    In addition, the Thru-axle is missing the lever end. The model is Formula LA XQR-12E.

    My few questions:

    1) Is the Zesty rear mech direct mount? Am I able to get an XT 780 vs a 781?

    2) What length cage do I get - medium, or long?

    3) Should I look for alternatives from maybe SRAM?

    4) Where can I buy replacement pieces for the Thru-axle? Are there alternatives that I can purchase. (Can't seem to find it anywhere)
