    I have a Trek X-Caliber 8 with a SRAM X7 rear mech.

    All is generally fine but it seems to be slipping every so often and ghost changing so figured its time for another cassette, rings and chain.

    Took the wheel off and noticed there seems to be a fair bit of slack on the bolt connecting the derailleur to the hanger.

    If tension is put on the cage to act as if the chain is there then it goes.

    I’ve read that a lot of SRAM derailleurs have this play but doesnt seem right to me so thinking i may swap that as well.

    due to shifters and ratio i assume i am stuck with SRAM so what is the best upgrade to the X7 and will this suffer from the slack issue on the mount bolt?
