Improve your shifting performance with a new derailleur hanger that is up to 12x as stiff as the stock aluminum hanger and 2-10g lighter
This is my second hanger! I’ve installed one on my Crux and actually found the shifting smoother so I’ve installed another on my Aethos. I’ll give that a go soon.
1 out of 5 for finishing / 5 out of 5 for performance.
There was a pretty major issue with the particular hanger I received. The hole for the thru-axel was basically oval.
When I first installed it it I quickly realised it was not finished to a precise standard like the OEM part. I tried two methods to install it. The first was to just screw in the mounting screw then put the thru axel in to check alignment. The thru-axel wouldn’t screw all the way, so tried a second method of installing it loose with the thru-axel fully bolted and then tighten the mounting bolt. This completely locked up the thru-axel and was unworkable. I ended up using a Dremel to file out the diameter of the thru-axel hole to fix this.
Not an ideal experience for an expensive upgrade but understandable given it is not a mass produced piece.
On the positive side, it seems to have greatly improved shifting performance.
Install went great once I realized it replaced both parts of my particular dropout/hanger (Aethos). Shifting is amazing and is a nice piece. Would recommend anyone who is curious to watch Josh's Video on YT explaining the science and rational when making this.
