What is the correct name for a derailleur hanger?
Derailleur hangers can also be known as mech hangers, gear hangers, rear mech hangers, dropout hangers, mountain bike hangers, road bike hangers, gear mech hangers, cast hangers… the list is endless.
What is a derailleur hanger?
Derailleur hangers are small pieces of metal that are designed to bend or snap to protect the frame of a bike and they are usually attached to the rear or front of the frame, near the derailleur. If you are not sure to which mech hanger is the right one for your bike, then do not hesitate to contact us, we will assist you.
Carrying a spare mech hanger is always strongly recommended as these can break at any given time, whether you are close to home or on the other side of the world on a cycling holiday. To reduce any inconvenience, carrying a spare mech hanger allows cyclists to replace their derailleur hanger and get cycling again within minutes, rather than having to order a new one and wait 2-5 working days to receive it.
