Hanger Emergency? No Sweat! The SOS Hanger Squad Has Got Your Back

Over 1200 different hanger references are in permanent stock, and that is no joke!

If you've been hitting the trails long enough, you know that mechanical issues: flats, broken spokes, and busted chains are all just part of the game. But there's one problem that can really throw a wrench in your ride - a broken derailleur hanger.

We all know that feeling when you're bombing down a gnarly trail and suddenly, your rear hanger gives out. You know, those little metal pieces that connect your derailleur to your frame? It’s supposed to help you shift gears smoothly and efficiently, but it can be a total gear grinder when it breaks.

The real issue with a busted rear hanger is that it can make your bike completely unrideable. Your derailleur won't shift gears properly, and you might even risk damaging your chain or other important components. And yeah, you can try to fix a broken hanger, but most of the time it's just not worth it. You're better off replacing it entirely, and that’s where the problem lies.

Result - missed rides with your mates, overdose on espressos while searching high and low for the right piece on the net, or an endless wait for your local bike shop to find the replacement for you. What a nightmare!

But! Don't sweat it, because SOS Hanger, with its team of nerdy experts who eat, sleep, and breathe bike mechanics, has got you covered. We have a selection of over 1200 different hanger references in permanent stock, and that is no joke! All of our parts are from PILO, one of the most experienced hanger manufacturer in the world. Their hangers are of the highest quality, precision-engineered and manufactured using advanced CNC equipment.

Made from 6061-T651 aluminum, they are stiffer and more resistant than the OEM cast hangers. This metal will still break when needed, so the risk of damaging your frame or derailleur is low ..and the hanger is there to break after all!

But how to find the correct hanger that will fit your specific frame? Simple! We can get you sorted in just 4 easy steps:

1. Take a picture of your hanger or the part of the frame where the hanger was mounted (in case you lost the broken piece)

2. Email the photos to
