    Replace derailleur hanger???????

    So my son took a stick into the rear derailleur while we were riding some single track and bent the rear derailleur. I have a newer Deore derailleur I can use as a replacement but I don't want to buy or wait for a derailleur hanger to arrive. I straightened it up with a park derailleur adjustment tool and it seems solid. Am I just being cheap and lazy, would you replace it or give it a go? Thanks. al.

    So it's removable? or was that supposed to be common knowledge?

    Depends on who you are, as whether it is common knowledge or not. Not all hangers are replaceable. But many are.

    Yes it's a replacable one, I'm thinking I'm going to give it a try, I live in the middle of nowhere so I'm looking at at least 3 days for one to arrive, I guess if I can't dial in the shifting I'll just have to order one then. thanks.

    Why not order one just to have around and run with what you have?

    +1 do both , order a spare and run with what you have, and be ready for the next mechanical problem.
