I have two questions about my homemade recumbent;

1.) It has what looks like a scratches on the inside of the rear derailleur has. I believe that it is out of alignment. Without an alignment tool is there a way to check this?

2.) I think that the bike started out as a road bike and was then converted to the recumbent and a MTB tire was put on it. Will this cause the above problem with the derailleur?
Have fun and just enjoy the ride

1. you can make an alignment tool from a light true wheel; some bike wheels have the same threads as the derailleur mounting bracket.

2. I don't see how. I would replace the MTB tire with something more suitable for street use.
