Anyone know if its possible to have the SRAM X9 rear D. replace the Saint Rear D while still having it mounted on the axle.

I like the idea of mounting the rear derailer to the axle but the saint rear derailer sucks compared to my X9. I don't want to connect the X9 to the drop out either.

Perhaps I would just need a threaded adapter to mount the X9 to the axle. But even then I'm not sure of the derailer would function properly that high up in that location.

not possible, but if you like the idea of having the axle to support your derailleur look into a hangar banger from north shore billet. I know JH and overtime sell them.

Those Flip Flaps look pretty sweet. They look a lot more durable and harder to bend than the stock QR20 Pro flaps. Good to know that there's another alternative out there when I finish off my bent tabs.

Those look pretty sweet, looks like they attach to the QR axle or heck even the 10mm axle.
