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!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
