    Highline replacement RD hanger

    Hey folks,

    I have been able to buy a replacement RD hanger for my Highline. Got the last avail one from Turner directly.

    Does anyone know where to get aftermarket replacements, or which ones will work with the Highline (DHR replacements perhaps)?

    Any help would be great! For background see other thread here:

    Highline XT 2x10 retrofit HELP!...

    Thanks,
    CH

    uh-oh, that's not good. I've got a trashed threads one from riding with loose derailleur bolt. I was a little confused by your other thread, I'm not familiar with the newer derailleurs, how did the old hanger get ruined? Old DHR and Highline shared a hanger, the older ones were bulkier than the newer ones and used a longer axle. I've never heard of an aftermarket but might have to try North Shore billet and see if they can help.

    Re: Highline replacement RD hanger

    Yeah, sorry for confusing. Basic problem was because I was shorted parts on a new RD, I ended up taking too much material off with the dremel to make the Shimano shadow+ RD fit, but had cassette/RD contact. Luckily was able to get the last one from Turner.

    Looked at NSB and Wheels mfg. Thier sites were unclear.

    Good to know that the HL and old DHR shared a hanger. That opens things up a bit I'm sure.

    Anyone else chime in or know where to get "old style" DHR RD replacement hangers?

    TIA,

    I bought a spare Highline Der hanger from Turner last year before going to Whistler. They had to do a pretty hard search to find one for me. They said they almost never break. Stripping threads, well that's a whole other thing.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    If you already have a replacement hanger, why do you need another one?

    I have had my Highline since 2008 and have never damaged the hanger in any way, but have destroyed at least one derailleur. 2 trips to Whistler, many trips around the Northeast without a spare. It is so beefy it is nearly impossible to damage.

    That said, it would still be a good idea to know where to get spares if needed.

    Try some Turner dealers like Go-Ride or The Path.

    Re: Highline replacement RD hanger

    @ Just... Not that I expect to damage another one, but I love my Highline and like to be able to fix my stuff the right way.

    @ air.... Good info there! Thanks

    It'd also be good to know if we can get old version DHR replacements as they are confirmed the same as the HL

    Bump....

    Haven't heard back from North Shore Components yet...

    Anyone know of an aftermarket RD hanger for the HL/DHR that works great?

    Re: Highline replacement RD hanger

    UPDATE:

    So I was emailing back and forth with North Shore Billet. Chris there said they'd look at making RD Hangers but they'd need to get their hands on a HL/old DHR frame for testing.....

    Can anyone oblige?

    Maybe make this request on nsmb.com, otherwise in 2 months I can help them.
    Do they need a frame or just a hanger?

    Not sure. I can clarify with them. Noted on your offer (I'll pass it on and pm you if necessary) and direction to NSMB.

    Thanks

    Let me know how this goes. I'm moving to North Vancouver with my '08 Highline in less than a month. Not sure how long they would need the RD for but maybe we could arrange a pick up/drop off, I won't be DH'ing for a while still.

    Please keep us all posted. I'm in to buy one if they make it. Always good to have one just in case. Especially since I never plan to get rid of my highline.

    Will definitely keep you guys in the loop. I'm driving out to Vancouver next week, once I connect with the guys from NSB, I'll drop off my bike in early July. Then it's up to them to make the part and offer it, and get me my bike back!

    I can certainly send the file for hanger to North Shore Billet, if they want it. I left a voice message on their machine 2 weeks ago offering hanger file/drawings and got no response. We get so few requests it ain't even funny.

    Almost every one fails is derailer threads, and the fix can be done with a steel threaded insert like Wheels sells, use the 'long' insert and that is good to go.

    I've yet to hear from anyone at NSB. The file would make more sense though, but if they want a sample as well let me know. The HL is parked in the house, not much time for DH these days

    I have also been onto NSB about getting one made, as I need one for my DHR. I'm based in the UK so if there is a technical document available of the hanger and Turner are happy to distribute it that would be great as I could take it to a machinist in the UK?

    This is when you need a 3d printer.
