    ANybody here know what hanger I can use on my Megamo Radical? This is the 4th time I've bent it back straight, and I think it's time to get some back ups....or start learning to sidehop to the other side better :(

    LBS had a whole slew of them, Specialized, GT, C-Dale, Trek, and none of them matched up. I'm thinking that they just didn't have one, or none of them cross-referenceable......

    Anybody know?

    If you want to order some from an online trials shop, the Megamo dropouts are the same as the Echo Pure, Zoo Boa, 2003 XTP, Ashton Justice, and a bunch of others, so if any of the trials shops carry those brands, I figure they would have plenty of replacement hangers.

    For now, just go to your shop, and get the hanger that closest fits your dropout. If it needs some filing, just do that, and it will get you riding again. All it needs to do is just hold the derailleur in place, relatively straight. Also, the steel magura boosters make dandy in-a-jam hangers.

    Cause I called Webcyclery and Trialsin USA, and neither knew which drop-outs would work for the Megamo....Called Megamo USA (Doug Ferrar) and that dude is never there....

    Thanks...gonna order some now then.....

    **edit** Found them...it's #1 on this pic of Planet X hangers...

    Awhile ago I got some from Tim at Trialsin. I have also seen that pic of the PX hangers, on Web's site I think. And as I remember, Web hasn't had the #1 hanger for a long time.

    If ya find something, say so. I haven't bent my current hanger, but don't have a backup either.

    you could ghetto rig it like my buddy ty and find a prety close match, the just cut off the hole and make it the right shape w/ a file or something. you rely on the quick-release to hold it on, but it works just fine.

    Oh man, you're right, Megamo use different hangers from the other frames I listed. Sorry about that.

    If you don't have luck getting ahold of the KHS number you posted, try Ken at thetrialsinshop, he's got Megamo hangers listed on his site, and for $15 cnd. Go to the bottom:

    Edit: Tanner beat me to it.

    Thanks! Tim called me back and said it looks like one he has in his shop, but since he can't see the back, he doesn't know if it'll work, so he's gonna send one out and if it works, we're golden, I can snag a couple from him.....

    If all else fails...guess I have to hit up Canada.....damn.....$11.50 usd each for something disposeable (gonna buy 5 or so).. But it's prolly cheaper that way than going through KHS....we'll see.

    The megamo dropouts are similar to the DDG Shooter frame. I hope this helps.

    I ordered 2 echo hangars from Webcyclery about 6 months ago and haven't got them yet. Hangers are a pain.

    Try http://www.derailleurhanger.com/ and email them a picture
