Rear Mech Hangers

by mpt68   March 8, 2013  

Anybody know the best place to get a replacement rear mech hanger for a bianchi nirone???
my chain snapped and trashed the rear mech,replaced both but noticed the hanger slightly bent so i took it to 2 LBS and neither would touch it as they said if owt went wrong they would be liable. Both shops said i would need to get in touch with a Bianchi dealer
ive straightened it out a bit but dont trust it incase it snaps.
thanks

Got my last one off ebay - there are a couple of vendors who have pictures of all the hangers and I simply matched it up.

If you can find a genuine Bianchi it may be better, suggest you phone the importer

Thinking Sounds like the bike shops near you SUCK!

If they've got a Madison account then a replacement one is usually next day and won't cost them postage. Oh, and I've just checked and the part you need IS in stock ;-P

Madison don't deal with Bianchi, so i'm assuming its the Wheels Manufacturing hanger you're talking about. It would be great if you could share the hanger's number as it might not be that easy to find the right one for an LBS that never dealt with Bianchis

For this type of thing, this shop is nearly always the most helpful: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk

I somehow managed to break a gear hanger that had never been in an accident using only my own strength! it wasn't one of their stock designs, but by sending them a photo, they know which one it was and offered to modify one of the stock ones for me for a fee.

I didn't go ahead in the end because I couldn't take the gear hanger off - one of the bolts sheared in the frame, so I would have to tap it out - which might have wrecked the frame in any case and it wasn't a frame I was too fond of, so I started again with a new frame.

So, firstly, I would check that you can remove the bent hanger before ordering a new one (even if you don't have to pay extra for a modified one) and then get in touch with SJS, and secondly, as a result of all this, I have a frame that I am considering for a fixie conversion; any thoughts?

You're probably going to laugh but if you go to a Halfords store, we deal with BETD who make their own hangers in house. They're about £20-£28 but are much stronger than the bog standard ones that come as standard. They do every type of gear hanger imaginable and usually despatch same day. They will do one for your bike as I have checked their site so it'll be really easy to get hold of. You don't need to contact Bianci at all.

Go on this link, identify your hanger, go into Halfords and ask them to get one for you.

Just as an extra piece of info, if you've straightened it and it works you don't really need a replacement.The hanger takes such little stress that it'll only budge if you try to shift 5 or 6 gears at once whilst stomping on the pedals with the force of a thousand galloping gazelles..
