Looking at neatening up the mech hanger on my Niner BSB RDO, i use an XT Di2 rear mech and find that the Llindaretts 11 adaptor improves the shifts with the cassette i run.
Only tried out an RP part for for this so far buton the stand the shift is good. Since its from a 3D model i'm currently exploring a few options for the final part. Options are RP sintered Ti alloy, RP sintered Al alloy, Machined from 6061T6 aluminium. Or if its its good enough for magura brakes a CF reinforced RP Nylon, MarkForged Onyx with constant strand CF reinforcement is almost as strong and stiff as Aluminium and the sections are thicker than most aftermarket Aluminium machined offerings. Calcs indicate it should be fine and piece parts price is good.

Although the frame is quick release i use a through axle, a 135x10 RWS axle which has a 20mm diameter locknut that makes the mech hanger interface really strong and rigid.
