    Trek Slash Rear triangle travel affecting Rear derailleur adjustment??

    I ride a 2014 Trek Slash which has primarily internal cable routing. Replaced the x-9 with a Gx 10 speed RD recently due to a tendency to continually seem to lose shift tuning (and randomly get chain skipping) after riding technical terrain (chunk, jumps, drops). This is a 1x0 drivetrain and with the fact that RD shifts perfectly on the bike stand and under pressure riding on roads the only thing that makes sense to me would be something happening with cable-routing and changes on cable tension somehow putting the RD out of adjustment after running through suspension travel? Do you guys think my theory is on the right track with this? I hate to go through the expense and pain in the butt factor of cable replacement if I'm missing something "simple". Thanks in advance.

    Sometimes housing can have sharp points at the ends that catch on the cable causing inconsistent shifting, especially with suspension travel.
