Rear derailleur angle troubles....
I am having some trouble with the RD on my new bike.
It seems to get out of adjustment quickly, skips gears and is noisy.
No amount of fiddling can make it as good as my older bikes.
I noticed that the angle on the RD is weird. The cage seems slanted in at the bottom.
But the cage is not bent. Both pulleys seem to be pointing outward toward the front of the bike. They cannot be aligned with the rear sprockets.
The dropout also seems tilted in at the bottom, but the bike has never even so much as fallen over. Plus the dropout is a good soild piece. I don't think it would bend this way. Welded crooked maybe?
