What is a derailleur hanger and how does it work?
Derailleur hangers (also known as hanger dropouts) are bike components that are screwed on the frame’s rear ends, in order to be joined to the derailleur itself. They have a very basic, and important, function – keeping the derailleur in place and preventing it from breaking in the event of an impact. Thanks to this little piece, you will prevent severe or irreparable damage to your bike’s derailleur. They are normally made of cold forged 6061 aluminium, don’t offer resistance and can be bent or broken easily with a light impact.
At Wizbiker, wae recommend that you buy a spare derailleur hanger together with your bike. If you hadn’t thought about it then, you can do it later. You can either find the original one or a compatible one, because most frames by the main cycling brands are produced at the same factories, and their geometries are similar.
