    New question here. Sram X-7 derailleur adjustment help needed!!!!!

    Okay this is probably a really stupid question that all of you mechanic types should have no problem with. I have an Sram X-7 rear derailleur and I need some help so I donít haft to go to the lbs. I can adjust the high and low set screws just fine (I think anyway) but my problem is that the angle of the derailleur is off and the chain rubs the inside of the next biggest cog on the front chain rings. I know there is an adjustment that I am missing somewhere but I just canít seem to find it. Thanks for the help in advance and if I was to confusing I will try to clear it up if need be.

    check that your derailleur hanger is not bent... it could be why your RD is "at an angle"

    Thanks for the input I had almost come the that conclusion myself after doing a little research on the web. Can I replace the hanger with a stronger one that is not as prone to binding.

    you could, but the whole idea of the replaceable hanger is that it will bend before trashing your RD (hopefully), so just order a couple and carry a spare... they are usually cheap...
