I've been fettling my gears to try and get them to index as they should.
No matter what I do the chain is still hitting the hangar and I've been sat here for a couple of hours looking at guides.
Any suggestions for me to try?

I want to try my new bike tommorow!

    Can't see how that's possible. Pic?

    I'l take one in a sec and post it. Basically when it is on the smallest cog the chain is catching the hangar.


    is it bent? I can't get it to run without it catching.

    Apologies for the complete lack of knowledge.

    It is bent. New anger needed.
