Derailleur hangers are the most helpful and useful component on any bike. Derailleurs are small pieces of metal that are attached to either the inside or outside of the rear frame of a bike, they are designed to absorb any impact and strain that would be focused on the frame of the bike. These handy mountain bike components and road bike components can also be known as mech hangers, mech dropouts, cast hangers, mountain bike hangers, road bike hangers and hanger dropouts.
Carrying a spare derailleur is essential because rear mech dropouts can break at any given time, whether you are close to home or on the other side of the world! By carrying a spare replacement derailleur, you are able to change your broken derailleur over and get riding again, with little inconvenience caused. If you continue to ride your bike with a broken or damaged derailleur, it will damage the frame, costing more money in the long run.
Cast Hanger 5 is suitable for various BH, Diamant, Gary Fisher, Kalkoff, Klein, Lemond, MBK, Trek and Univega bike frames. If you’re unsure of which specific model it’s compatible for, contact the BETD team.
