How To Repair Stiff/Frozen Rear Derailleur Mounting Pivot

Posted by on in Derailleurs


The rear derailleur should be able to pivot on the mounting bolt and be able to spring back to its original position. But the derailleur on the bike I was working was really stiff and only pivoted back if I pushed it. So I disassembled the bit of the derailleur that held the mounting bolt and spring, did a clean, lube, and reassembled the derailleur.
