When your derailleur hanger needs replacing, is there a good resource for matching frames to hangers?

Mine was recently bent, so I had to dig through some websites and compare pictures of the hangers to my bent unit. Surely there's a better way. Any ideas?

Would love to know if there is a free resource. Large high volume bike shops have access to a pretty complete reference site (I've got a link at home, I'll try to remember to paste it in later)...but it's too pricey for individuals ($50/month if memory serves). Best bet is to call your manufacturer and see what the "official" hanger to use is. –  Ken Hiatt Jul 12 '12 at 19:43

Wheels Manufacturing has a feature to search by brand for their hangers. Just one company of many that produces replacement hangers.

The other answer is actually much better... –  Alexander Jan 28 at 23:52

http://derailleurhanger.com/ allows you to search by brand or design (number of holes). While it has a better selection than Wheels Mfg and the prices are slightly lower, the search function does require JavaScript to be enabled.

According to their policies: "We are very proud to offer high quality, USA produced derailleur hangers from Wheels Manufacturing, which is based in Colorado. Wheels Mfg hangers are CNC machined from aircraft-grade 6061-series aluminum, and anodized black. We also offer hangers from several other high quality manufacturers. When sourcing hangers, our goal is to stock hangers that are CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum." –  Kipton Barros 16 hours ago
