I've been having problems with my rear shifting. If I adjust the rear derailleur so that I can shift cleanly on the smallest cogs, I have trouble with shifting on the biggest cogs. If I adjust the rear derailleur so that I can shift cleanly on the biggest cogs, I have trouble shifting on the smallest cogs. I've taken steps to rule out the usual suspects (dirty cables, poor cable routing, worn cassette, worn chain, dirty derailleur pivots, muck in the shifter mechanism), so I think what's left is either a bent derailleur cage or a bent hanger.
I know it can be really hard to judge this kind of thing from pictures, but I thought I'd at least ask if anyone can see something obvious in these images.
The only thing I can see is that derailleur cage is kind of bowed, and I don't know if that's normal or not.
It may be a trick of the camera, but it looks to me like the derailleur isn't lined up right with the cogs here. I don't remember seeing that when I was in the garage.
I think this is the best pic I have of the hanger.
There's nothing here that looks definitive to me, but I was hoping maybe more trained I would see something.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
