I'm building a bike from old bikeparts, but i've got a problem. The part that connects the derailleur with the frame doesn't fit, and I thought I would find something on chainreactions, but I can't see anything. Any suggestion?

Pictures would probably help. – Colin Newell Jun 10 '12 at 8:40
Pictures would definitely help. It's hard to guess what you mean by "the part that connects the derailleur with the frame." The hanger? The bolt that goes into the hanger? – jimirings Jun 12 '12 at 23:49

2 suggestions.

  1. Only change the derailleur, since the new frame should have its own derailleur hanger.
