View Full Version : XT Shadow+ Direct Mount on Giant Anthem - Too much lateral movement?

March 30th, 2015, 10:44 PM
I am direct mounting a new XT Shadow+ derailleur on a 2014 Giant Anthem Advanced 27.5 frame. I have noticed that there is a bit of side to side play in the mount. Using calipers, the thickness of another bike I have with a direct mount derailleur is 7.9mm and the hanger on the Anthem is 6.75mm. Anyone know if there are spacers available for the direct mount bolt? Or maybe I need a different derailleur hanger?
