Can any Shimano MTB rear derailleur be mounted to a type 1 (206375) Scott derailleur hanger.
I have a type 1 derailleur hanger with a Shimano STX rear derailleur mounted and like to mount a Shimano XT rear derailleur:
The reason I ask is, because last year I wanted to temporarily replace my derailleur with a Shimano Alivio 8 speed derailleur because the old one was damaged, but I had problems mounting the derailleur in the correct position/angle. I was able to screw it tight, but only in a strage direction. I finally gave up and managed to repair my old derailleur faster then expected.
Now I'd like to upgrade to a 9 speed cassette, gearshift and rear derailleur and remembering that problem back then makes me ask the same question again.
