Axle Mount Derailleur

  • Afternoon all

    Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section, wasn't sure whether to put it here or in Bikes & Bits...

    I've got an old Falcon road frame that I'm currently running fixed, but I'm looking to pick up a track frame quite soon, and then rebuild the falcon as something a bit more lazy/comfortable.

    So I was going to stick a 5 speed cassette on the back, but there's no derailleur mount.

    So in short my question is: Does anyone know where I might get an axle mount derailleur, or a permanent universal hanger? Click here for an example.

    I found a couple of universal hangers on the innervebs, but they were being sold as temporary options (replacing the drive side QR bolt) so I'm not too keen on this as a permanent solution.

    Any advice welcomed!

  • Loads of old bikes had them, so I'd check ebay or bike recycling places. If you put a wanted in the classifieds section I'm sure someone will have one for pennies/postage

  • Thanks for the advice dude, I was gonna try and get a new one but I think I'll be hard pressed. One has just popped up in classifieds this evening. Great timing :)

  • Argh I've only just seen this! I may give you a shout about the freewheel cassette actually. Thanks for letting me know!
