You need to adjust the screw near the dropout. The one that actually touches the mech hanger.

If adjusting it (screw it clockwise) doesn't tilt the mech into a position where you have more clearance, the internal spring is most likely broken. In that case I'd suggest changing the mech. It's just a Deore, not worth mourning really.


ok i took the rear mech off the other day and the spring on the thread that screws in to the hanger just swung back and didnt do much afterwards

theres a good vid of a shimano mech and a sram mech on bumpy ground.
The shimano mech really jumps up and down whereas the sram remained rigid
