Rear Shifting issue
Hi, This is my first post so in open to tips to help me post the most accurate source of my problem. First off Im riding on a Dawes Lightning Sport from around 2008. Second im running with a Shimano Sora RD-3400SS Derailleur with its Max set as 31 tooth and Min at 11 tooth. My cassette is ranged from 31 to 12 tooth. My issue is when I Shift into first my deraillure is actually running right on the cassette, it doesn't affect performance but is make the worse kinda sound. i want to know if this is fixable by either changing the hanger or the cassette

RE: Rear Shifting issue
are you saying that the jockey wheel does not have sufficient clearance from the cassette when in the highest gear, if so simply adjust the B-angle screw (the one on the derailleur that is not the limiting screws) to increase the clearance slightly.

I have adjusted the screw to the max and no change from all the way out to all the way in
