Bent Rear Derailleur Hanger Flying w/BF
I have a BF Pocket Rocket which I pack in a Carlton hard suitcase for flying. On one flight the rear derailleur protector peg broke. Even the suitcase crush protector was not able to prevent pressure on the rear derailleur, which resulted in a bent rear derailleur hanger. So after that I've been unbolting the rear derailleur from the hanger before packing the bike.
Now my trips with the BF are become more frequent but shorter, so I'd really like to minimize the packing/unpacking time. So I'm considering rebolting the rear deraileur. After the first rear derailleur protector peg broke, I ordered another one (even though I had been unbolting the rear derailleur). On my last flight the replacement peg broke.
What gear should I shift the derailleur to if I leave it bolted on? Any other suggestions?
