I have little experience with derailleur's especially on old bikes. I have just refitted the derailleur to my falcon racer and it works (well kinda, little bit sloppy) but it just doesn't look like its sitting right. If i where to take the wheel off the derailleur would just drop off!

If i bolt it on the other side it seems to close to the cogs, think i'm being a dumb ass here

What am i missing here? Could anybody help me :?



This is what it looks like:

Also can you still get gear cable with these end bits? is it the same as your bog standard gear cable from chainreaction?

It looks like this:

Thanks ya'll 8)

the bolt on the mech hanger (now at the 6 o clock position) needs to go into the drop out behind the axle

Standard gear cables too

The hanger bracket for the derailleur usually has a screw which will fit either into one of the mudguard/rack eyes, or into a hole in the dropout itself, with the slot in the hanger lining up with the dropout.

(like above :P )
