    New question here. Vassago Bandersnatch 2010 - Dropouts

    Howdy

    I ordered a Vassago frame from an online shop in the USA. I am from South Africa. Framed arrived yesterdays without the dropouts (hanger kit) So now I need to wait another week or two for the dropouts.

    What I want to know is if there is dropouts from any other brand of mtb's that is compatible with the Bandersnatch ? Or any other solutions

    Thanks

    Double check all the packing and the box-sometimes they are loose. They are taped to the packing usually.
    i own a bikeshop in WV thetruewheelwv.com

    My guess is that you got your frame from Bikebling.com As for the hanger, it is a pretty come style.

    Check some of your local shops, they might be able to order one that will work.

    Hey , i also have a 2010 bander .

    I wanted to order a couple of spare CNC hangers from Vassago , but international postage to Oz was crazy .

    I was told about WM #67 and found that its a common hanger , i bought 2 machined hangers from eBay - $9.95 each , got 2 of them Delivered for under $24.

    Heres the link .........

    I've found spare hanger in local bike shop, it's not unique thing.

    It's costs me about 3$

    Nardusg , there is a massive difference between the standard Vassago hanger that comes on the frames and the CNC Machined Alu ones bought aftermarket. The standard ones sent with the Banders are absolutely crap, The ones from chainreaction are CNC'd ones so you'll be good.

    Know this is an old post but does anyone know the part number for the CRC machined ones. They dont list Wheels Manufacturing Hanger #67 on their site either.

    And yes the stock one is crap.
