    Diamondback response rear derailleur question.

    A couple of weeks ago my derailleur got caught in my spokes while I was riding and it pulled it right out of the hole that it screws into. The derailleur is a sram x3. it was damaged so I bought another one. Problem is now that the hole that I need to screw the derailleur in is stripped so now I canít screw in the new one. Is there a way to fix this or has my $400 bike bit the dust in only about a month of so of riding. From what I can tell I canít just take this part off and buy a new one the hole that is stripped out is part of the bike frame.

    A side note, does anyone know if this hole is considered the frame of the bike and if so is this covered under diamondbackís lifetime frame warranty.

    You need to replace your derailleur hanger too. Your LBS might have one or they might have to order it from DB.

    Good luck

    (It should look like one of these)

    maybe it's not a separate hanger?

    OP, can you remove the piece? or is it physically part of the frame?

    If so, you could put a heli-coil in there.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Yeah that's exactly what I need, when I was looking at the bike i thought it would be nice if this piece could just be replaced too, but I thought it was part of the frame.

    You guys are great! I asked this question on yahoo answers and no one responded. I registered here and asked the same question and sure enough I got the answer I needed, thanks a lot!

    I like to carry a couple of spares hangers in my bag. You never know when something like that would happen and you don't want to be stranded out in the middle of a ride.

    I have been riding since the mid 90's and I have never broken a derailleur hanger. I have broken cranks, forks, bent wheels, broken spokes and broken the actual derailleur itself, but never the hanger.
