My SRAM Rear Derailleur was badly damaged during my last ride to Frasers Hill. The Derailleur Pivot screw holes came loose and caused the upper pulley wheel carbon fiber cage to be dislodged from the body of the derailleur. Even the upper pulley wheel broke and as you can see from the picture, lost a few of the pulley tooth. Luckily I was not cycling fast when the incident happened. Decided that this would be my last carbon rear derailleur ever. I installed an 11 Speed SRAM Rival 22 rear derailleur after this. Yes... an 11 Speed Rival 22 Rear derailleur works with a 10 Speed SRAM Red power train.. The SRAM Apex comes with a aluminium pulley cage and a aluminium derailleur body at only 35grams heavier. Even comes with the same AeroGlide Pulleys like the SRAM Red 22. Peace of mind.
