1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    So this Bike is Garbage now?

    Broke My Rear Deraillier Hanger on my Old 1998 Fuji, and cannot seem to source a replacement, on-line or in a few local Shops. Is there some sort of Universal Hanger, or can I get something that is close to work. Seems like my only option is to get a new Frame or Bike....

    Thoughts?

    1. Machine shop
    2. Singlespeed with a tensioner (to allow for chain growth during suspension compression)

    That is all I got!

    This is probably the closest thing to what you got. Probably would fit with a little fabrication:

    Have you contacted this place: www.webmountainbike.com/derhan.html?

    Custom Derailleur Hangers Please just let us know the year, make, and model of your bike and we will send you the proper derraileur hanger
    Edit: Pretty vague statement, not sure by "custom" if this means they'll fabricate one or try to find one by some other means.

    Yes its close but i think the space between the last hole and where it needs to snug up with the end of the frame may be to short.


    I contacted that other supplier for there "Custom Hangers" well see what they come back with. I may have to find something close and hit it with the dremel...

    Ive been researching SS conversions though here while im "working"

    Thanks for everyones Help!!

    Machine shop it, use a stronger metal but in reality that frame is not worth saving.

    I cant imagine that Machine shop time for a one off piece would be anywhere reasonable...


    Its worth it to me to get back on the Bike...

    Just broke my derailleur hanger yesterday so had a bunch of links handy, however couldn't find yours on any of them either. Good luck finding it... what a shame to stop riding a perfectly good bike due to missing one tiny little part!
