Tinea - thanks for the feedback. It is ridiculous, isnt it. Not sure what you mean by it not being a standalone issue, but lets focus on the matter in hand.
Anybody else noticed this accelerated wear on their 9000fd ?
Looking at Strava, I have done about 10,000km on this fd, only twice in rain.

On my DA9000 front mech, the cage has worn extremely quickly.
The location of the wear is on the outer side, on the inside, where the chain passes through. The chain has worn a square groove into the metal.
Have a look at these pictures;
The wear has caused the coating on the outside to flake a bit now, too.
I have had this since April 2013.
Now, again, before anyone comments, NO, I have not been riding this with the chain rubbing, and NO, I have not been cross-chaining small-small, causing more rubbing. This has happened with normal shifting.
Seriously, this new Dura Ace 9000 stuff is just problem after problem.
you are not confusing this with the step in the lower part of the outer plate ?
with a mechanical setup i'd always ease off when shifting
isn't one of the claimed benefits of electrical shifting that you can shift under power? which surely means the potential force of the cage on the chain will be higher with correspondingly more grinding action
you mention that you shift a lot, do you ease off, or keep the power on because the shifting allows it?
You have to buy one anyway, it appears that it is not a huge issue with anyone else, and you insist all the suggestions are hog wash. Shimano is crap, Campy is better. Ok I said it. Next thread.
Honestly, when you post things like this which are unrelated to the topic in hand, how do you expect it to help anything?
Actually, dont answer that.
Seriously, I had hoped that sharing stuff like this would be entirely a positive thing, but I dont think I will bother again. Back to lurking and not contributing.

Chill out mate, you'll give yourself an ulcer.
Ps. I've now got 4000km including lots of climbing on my DA 9000 cassette and it still hasn't exploded.

I started this thread to highlight an issue I am having with a bike component I own and to ask if anybody else is having the issue. Is that not what this forum is for?For the love of god I have set it up perfectly. Every bloody time I post something like this I get the usual replies telling me I havent set it up properly. Enough!
Sorry, maybe I read it wrong. I just appeared that all the recommendations were brushed off as 'everything is perfect including me'. Sorry, if we do not really know you or your talents. Maybe your right on both [although your recent comments have formed a good opinion for me]. We're just attempting on 'contributing' to an question, not saying you do not know what you are doing.
