Hi Folks,

I noticed that the bottom of my b-tension screw rests on the hanger in around maybe 1/3 of its width.

Im not sure if you will be able to see that on this photo. Should I get a new hanger or is it ok to leave it like that? Note thst I was aware of that screw when installing the RD and it isnt bent or anything. It just seems that this part of hanger is too short.

    If it worries you it would be easier to bend the tab a fraction.

    looks fine to me.

    bet it works fine as well so just go and ride.

    Not sure if it worries me. On my road bike that screw rests on the hanger in its full width. So I was quite surprised seeing this one.
