    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    Thanks for the advice. The Campag one looks solid... but why would you put the idea of a 'retro toolkit" in my head??! Retrobikes are financially draining enough!!

    If anyone buys this, I have the correct fork to match it. I have the fork as the frame is cracked and I have found out that it's not financially viable to repair.

    1993 Trek 8300 build (finished for now)..

    I've had a bit of time to build up the rest of the bike and I'm almost finished. I fitted the Suntour SE brakes front (reversed) and rear and cabled up the shifters and mechs using NOS Accushift cable housing, although the writing is fading off it and I don't hold out hope that it will be...

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    Update: took it to my LBS who fixed it for £15. Sorted. In think I'll invest in the alignment tool anyway as it will be worth having for checking alignment of frames as well as fixing them👌

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    I hear you, but I'm invested in this frame now and I'm not giving up! This is why I posted for advice on here as I am aware of the brittle nature of aluminium and I know there is a lot of knowledge within this forum. LBS is my first port of call.

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    My reasoning for this was that I had an NOS Suntour XC Pro short cage mech and although it looked to shift positively, the older medium cage one seemed to have a slightly stiffer spring so I wanted to eliminate the possibility that the NOS one had a faulty spring or was somehow bent. Both mechs...

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    I think I'll take it to one of two lbs' that I trust and see what they say. If they start huffing and puffing or wanting ridiculous money I'll attempt a fix myself. Thanks everyone for your advice 🙏

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    This seems like a sound method which I might try. I have tried to press the bend flat using 2 pieces of hardwood and a vice but it didn't work. I think that I need the leverage of an axle or similar to get things right and I like the plates idea. I'm still 50/50 on whether to try myself or...

    Bent aluminum hanger. Help please!

    I'm at the end of my build and today I tried to dial in my index shifting. The bike struggled to drop from 2nd highest to highest (smallest) cog. I changed both shifter and derailleur but exactly the same problem occurred. Then I noticed the hanger (dropout? - unsure of correct terminology)...

    Attached are pics. I'll have to send you the 2 individual legs as a whole as I cannot detach the clamps due to the threaded allen heads.

    Wanted Pace RC36 V brake mounts.

    I have a set that I was going to save from some fork legs to keep as a 'just in case' I paid £30 for the (crumblimg) fork legs but when I tried to remove the clamps I think an allen head failed so I put them back in my box of spares.. I will try to get some pics if I get a chance this evening...
