This is the third frame, countless hangers and two derailleurs.
My setup is a Guru Evolo, SRAM force, derailleurs and shifters with an Ultegra cassette (the SRAM one was cockeyed) and a Dura-ace chain. I've also used an Ultegra cassette with a SRAM chain and with a KMC chain. I've also tried it with a Guru Geneo and a Dedacciai Nerissimo.
The main issue is that with the frame correctly aligned, the derailleur hanger straight as a pin, my rear derailleur cage, when in my 53-12 combo, points at least 7 degrees away from the bike. If you try to back pedal in that gear,, well,, you simply can't back pedal in that gear. re-setting the hanger to work correctly in that gear causes it to go out elsewhere. At first I thought it was just a bent derailleur, but the new one I just put on is even worse.
Am I missing something, was there a bad batch of derailleurs? The cages on both of mine do not line up with the rest of the derailleur body, is this normal?
Any input from SRAM experts would help. I'm quite fluent with Campy, but this is my first SRAM drive train.
Thanks in advance.
If I align the upper pulley with the second to smallest sprocket, and I shift up to the second to largest, it is out of alignment. On top of that, the lower cage is not vertical, but pointing slighly sideways (cannot recall if it's outwards or inwards), which makes riding in the biggest sprocket very noisy.
The best I was able to do was to align the derailleur with the sprocket in the middle, and let it be slighly out of alignment towards both ends of the cassette.

Have run/am running without issues:
Red (pre 2012) (heavily tuned)
Force (~2010 model) (heavily tuned)
Apex (multiple years) (one lightly tuned, others normal)
All quiet - not including the obvious, distinctive 'thunk' of gear switching.
Hopefully y'all can resolve the issues you are finding.
FWIW there have been 5 SRAM RD's used in my stable and never any problems with alignment or noise. (One main spring did break but SRAM took care of that ASAP.)
