Feature: BETD Derailleur Hangers

They go by many names, derailleur hangers, mech hangers, gear hangers and rear dropouts, so it’s only natural that we stock just as many! Our collection of rear mech hangers has over 400 different pieces which are compatible with a huge range of the UK’s most popular bike brands and models. But this isn’t just a big range for the UK – this is the world’s biggest collection of rear dropouts.

This small, sacrificial part of your bike is designed to break so that your bike frame doesn’t, which is why we recommend you keep spare derailleur hangers on hand while you’re out riding and at home in the components kit. It’s also the reason that we put so much precision into manufacturing a component that is often replaced. The right break in the gear hanger means the right protection for your frame and wheel.


All our BETD components are manufactured in the UK, in our facility in Staffordshire. They’re CNC machined from aerospace grade aluminium and anodised for protection and longevity. We feel it’s important to have these hangers machined under the watchful eye of expert engineers and with stringent quality control practices.

Can’t Find Your Hanger?

Even advanced riders can have a hard time working out which hanger they need and then finding it in a list of 400+ adds an extra level of challenge. For this reason, you can search our site by MTB hangers, road bike hangers, and gravel bike hangers, or, via bike manufacturer and model. Still unsure? Send us a picture of your current hanger – even if its broken – and let us know where it sits in the frame and one of our team will get back to you ASAP with the right hanger for your bike.
