Tech Talks: Derailleur Hanger Alignment, Presented by Park Tool - Video
Yeah, a good concept, but it sadly has some real life limitation. I think they have to make them out of cheese grade alu to make sure they're the weakest link. As I said, in my experience the threads of the stock hanger rip out before the bolt shears, so I wouldn't be surprised if they get deformed in an impact. The steel version worked flawlessly for me, I've destroyed a couple mech and it's still perfectly straight, but that's no bueno it if destroys a carbon frame, I feel your pain. If the interface of the frame is not straight enough, it should be caught at the QC stage at the factory, but I guess that's what you get when you mass produce frames in China. Thing like brake mounts and calipers need to be perfectly faced as well, but it's usually not an issue these days. Anybody here misses those f$%&ing conical washers that avid used for years to compensate for misaligned mounts?

Tech Talks: Derailleur Hanger Alignment, Presented by Park Tool - Video
You can't straighten those syntace hangers Norco uses. They don't use a flimsy piece of metal that's designed to bend like other hangers, the bolt will shear before it bends. The idea is that you can just replace the snapped bolt with the one hidden on your frame and you're good to go with a fully functionnal drivetrain. The problem is that instead of shearing the bolt, it's often the aluminium threads in the hanger itself that strip, so you need to buy a new hanger anyway. This happend twice on my range, so I ended up buying the aftermarket steel version as well. I love them, they are super sturdy and still straight after 3 years of hard use and a few smashed derailleurs. Never had a problem since I made the change, but I have an alu frame, so it's not as big of an issue.

@AProulx: Could be, I guess the margins are just not big enough to compete on 500$ bikes.

24 Hours in the Squamish Backcountry - Photo Epic
These are not secret trails by any means, they say it's above Squamish, most locals know exactly where they are and there were many articles on PB about this area. I think they just wanted to keep the sense of adventure, as with the quote "Don't expect to find these routes laid out for you, though, adventure is often about taking your own paths"
