    GX Derailleur failure

    Has anyone seen a failure like this on an eagle derailleur? Iíll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume I hit it on something but this area isnít all that exposed. I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out why I couldnít shift to the smallest cog after adjusting the h-limit, cable tension, etc. Iím glad I finally saw the problem. Looks like Iíll be buying a new one. Oh well, I guess I can upgrade to the 52 tooth cassette when my current one wears out.

    Only known issues I have seen were the NX upper jockey falling out of the derailleur. Happened 3 times before they issued me a GX then it was good...

    The same happened to my wife's GX Eagle derailleur a few weeks ago... To be fair though, the hit was hard enough to bend the hanger pretty much 90 degrees at the same time, so not many derailleurs I have experienced would survive that kind of impact.

    Don't worry though, the bike was still OK other than that
