I think your right the chain was re-joined without using the correct replacement Shimano pin thingy.

@neilfein, to me 'mechanical' implies a (mechanical) break-down. like a snapped chain or a cable or a broken mech/derailleru in this case.

comment Why are tubeless tyres popular in mountain biking?
Are they that popular, where I ride, we'd regularly change tyre for the conditions and tubeless just doesn't seem worth it... I don't know anyone who rides with tubeless!

The hanger is fine.. The bike is steel and after the first mech went the hanger was bent but got it straightened and mech replaced at my LBS. Just to emphasises, the mech was nowhere near the spokes..! :o|

have you ever replaced the chain or rear cassette or front chain rings?
