    Norco Sight Alloy + X1 issue

    Hey people,

    I'm having some problems installing X1 on a friends bike, and I believe that I've narrowed it down to the interaction between the derailleur and the hanger. Even if I move the B-screw in all the way, I can't adjust the jockey wheel length from the largest cog.

    Is there a difference between the hangers in the Alloy versus Carbon versions?

    Or am I missing something obvious and am too frustrated to see it?

    I think I figured it out. The bike used to have an SLX rear mech that appears to be using a "direct-mountain" hanger for the Syntace-X12 instead of the standard hanger. I ordered a standard X12 hanger and we'll see if that fixes the issue.

    Turns out I was right. If you want to go to Sram X1 on the Sight alloy, you need the standard X12 hanger.

    Everything is working perfectly now.

    I just had this same issue on my Range C7.3 going to sram XX1. It also had the shimano direct mount hanger. Norco should throw in a normal hanger with the bike since many people are likely to have this issue.

    I upgraded to a 1x10 on my 2015 Sight 7.1A a few weeks back using the Praxis 1x10 cassette.
    Very simple process and no issues at all. I would highly recommend the Praxis solution - in fact looking at getting the Turn Girder cranks now.
