Hi guys, time for an update.
All of the new parts have arrived now, and I'm ready to start putting it all together. At least, that was the case until I tried to fit a new derailleur and found that the hanger is completely stripped! No wonder it had no derailleur come with it.
So, after doing some research, I need to decide between using helicoils
or a dropout saver
Has anyone had any experience using either of these? Or even better, any other, cheaper options? Simply re-threading the hole won't be enough as there isn't enough material left.
Other than that, the build is coming along nicely; I'll update with pictures as I go.
