Is my rear derailleur hanger bent?
I just got my new frame and giving it a once over I was checking the derailleur hanger because Ive heard stories of people getting bent ones...As you can see through the picture its not obviously bent through the naked eye, even upon close examination it looks very straight...but when i put a straight edge to it...the bottom tip is pointed inward (toward where the sprockets will be) just about 1mm...
heres 2 photos for the sake of being thorough:
I know its just 1mm...and heck it might be the way it just is and the way all bikes are...I dont know because Im new to MTB....is 1mm gonna affect anything?
(please dont flame im just new and paranoid)
