After an accidental mishap in the living room:mad2: , my derailleur hanger got bent on my 3 month old Look 585. I took it to the LBS and they straightened for me and re adjusted all the cables, buttold me that i now need to replace my rear derailleur hanger and that my original one has now weakened and is only good for a 'short period of time'.

Does it really need to be replaced?? It wasn't a high velocity accident, it literally just fell over from an upright position.
Does a rear derailleur go through much stress?

that's what it's for... next time it may break, and if it happens while riding it could do some damage. do you feel lucky?

did they check the der alignment?
