Bent Hanger

  • Did some bike packing this weekend, all was great. On the train back from Bristol decided to get off at Chippenham and cycle the rest of the way home. In doing so a big stick jammed in the RD and bent the hanger. It's a steel bike with the hanger built into the frame, it looks pretty bad. Do you think a shop could bend this back successfully?

  • Could be doable. But no guarantees.

  • That looks fixable, you do need a good bike shop to do it though.

    For myself I would probably initially squeeze it in a vice and then use a g clamp to align it, if using a "home" fix.

  • Pretty much my thoughts re vice it but I’d then use a hanger alignment tool.

    Am just north of Gloucester if you want to a hand with it.

  • Cheers! I have tried contact e-mail Argos racing cycles, haven't heard anything back yet though. Hoping it can be an easy fix for them.
