    Derail. Hanger question

    So, from Titus I can get a new hanger for $32+ shipping. WoW , that's a high ticket item. I see some knockoffs on E-bay...any good? Anyone have advice other than Titus? Is this $32 one 'new' and improved? I used to pay $23, last year for OEM.

    Ebay hangers

    Hey,
    I'm running one of them now. It seems to work out, haven't had any problems with it. I actually just ordered two more as backups.

    Yeah... almost any online Titus retailer.

    I got mine from Bikerbob. He's got also the SS one. I went for the plain black aluminum one.

    Really nice the quality of Titus hangers compared to others. Machined from a forge, anodized... cool. But in the end, a hanger is just that, a hanger. A sacrificable piece of aluminum.

    If you were suprised at that price, below is an email I received from a certain major US web based retailer for Titus while I was recently chasing up a replacment hanger fo my HCR. Even more amusing, I said in my email to this company that I have contacted Titus and they did not have any available, I was hopeing I could find a shop who had 1 on the shelf.

    Copy of email...
    Titus does have the replacement hanger/ dropouts available. One set goes for $70. However, there are two different models for the 05 HCR. One set with two bolt holes and the other with three bolt holes. Give me a call between 10am and 6pm central standard time so I can put the order in for you.Shipping to Australia will be $40!


    It was also interesting to see the $1.70 postal stamp on the package that I received from Titus where this company above were going to charge me $40 for freight.

    The story ended very well with Titus finding me a second hand one and shipping it to me in Australia at no cost untill there supplier can manufacture more

    I bought one from this guys, at ebay. Got the hanger in few days, and it fits wonderfully. So far (few weeks), had no problem with it.
