    Direct mount hanger

    Does anyone have interest in a direct mount rear derailleur hanger for their std. dropout Santa Cruz?


    i called SC a few weeks ago, and they have no plans to make one available. They do offer one for the newer 142x12 Thru axle models.
    Santa Cruz Bicycles


    I have to think there are a lot of bikes out there with the same SC rear facing, 2 screw frame mounts, hopefully there is some demand.

    As nice as the new Shimano Shadow Plus RDs are, it would be nice to utilize the direct mount and ditch the extra link.

    If it didn't offer any value, why would they bother to have the option on the newer thru axle bike?

    A lot of my old bikes or components weren't broke...

    The amount of money it would take would not equal the potential gains offered by the direct mount.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
