    Derailleur hanger for an 02 Rocky Element

    Does anyone have one of these that you want to sell? I live in SoCal & have few dealers nearby. I need 1 quicker than the LBS can provide. Or does anyone know what other mfgr's hanger can work with this frame. Any suggestions would be appreciated. BTW, I've already contacted Rocky & also my nearest LBS. Thanks in advance.

    I had a similar problem recently, but managed to bend it back using a vise.
    if it is a straight bend and you can see where it is in the paint, just unscrew
    the hanger, clamp it along the line and bend back with an adjustable wrench.
    Worked for me.

    Thanks for your reply & info.

    I have bent it back twice and am bearing with it for now. Main reason I feel I need a new one is that this one is basically stripped at the point where the B screw on the derailleur is supposed to mount. I don't know if my terminology is correct, but that area got chewed up & I think it is what is causing me to have shifting problems, mainly of the ghost nature. Anyway, thanks for the info. I was going crazy.
