    Salsa Maxle derailleur hanger 50$. Really??

    Just had to replace my 2nd derailleur hanger after a not-so-nice impact on my 2012 Horsethief. I'm wondering why this part is nearly twice expensive as other hangers. No after-market options either. Kind of a ridiculous price, imo. I understand that things break in mtn bike crashes and need replacing, but $50 for a tiny part like this seems a bit much.

    Holy c$%p! I just got my bike and since it didn't come with an extra hanger (like other manuf. do) I went to look for one to keep in my pack. No wonder I got such a good deal on the bike! They'll make up the extra $$$ with future Der. hanger sales!
    Anyone find an after market supplier for these?

    I'm also on the hunt for an alternative, haven't broken one yet, but I like to carry a spare. $50 is ridiculous when Santa Cruz's thru axle hangers are only $12.

    I reached out to both North Shore Billet and Wheels Mfg., Wheels said they're considering making one (but no ETA).
