What Is a Mech Hanger?
A mech hanger is a small piece of metal that is designed to bend or snap to protect the frame of a bike. Mech hangers are also known as derailleur hangers, rear mech hangers, hanger dropouts, mountain bike hangers, road bike hangers and cast hangers. They are usually attached to the rear derailleur.
Carrying a spare hanger dropout is always strongly recommended as these can break at any given time, whether you are close to home or not. 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.
At BETD, we have over 20 years’ experience in the mountain bike component and road bike component industry. We boast over 400 CNC machined derailleur hangers, all made from 6082 T6 aluminium. All of our mech hangers promise superior strength, amazing durability and great shifting. Making them your robust and premium, yet affordable upgrade from a standard cast hanger.
Not to mention they all come in a black anodised finish, which makes this perfect for any bike. We are proud to say that all of our derailleur hangers and bike components are designed and manufactured right here in the UK, Stoke-on-Trent.
We don’t stop there, we also design and manufacture Middleburn components, hubs, bearings, linkage plates, shock bushes and much more.
