Tech Talks Presented by Park Tool is a monthly video series hosted by Park Tool's own wrench whisperer, Calvin Jones. The new series will cover the A to Zs of some of the most prevalent repair jobs, with the third episode tackling an operation that some may find intimidating: derailleur hanger alignment.
While a specific tool is needed to do the job correctly, straightening a derailleur hanger doesn't require the use witchcraft or the help of a salty shop mechanic. Having to straighten your bike's hanger means that it has actually done its job - it's designed to bend slightly to save your frame and derailleur from permanent damage. Now all you have to do is realign the hanger to fix your shifting, which Calvin and Ben show you how to do in the video below. Tech Talks - Derailleur Hanger Alignment
