Hi Hubbers,

This may be one of a few questions. My dad has helped out a few less privileged kids where he lives in the overberg and is slowly becoming the de-facto bike mechanic for his town. He can't get parts that easily so he's asked me to source some stuff, despite neither of us being experts. Here's the first one. A replacement hanger is needed for an old Raleigh RC4500. The image below is just a screen grab from another advert I saw (sorry if it's yours) but quite simply, I need buy a replacement hanger like the one in this picture. I've actually got a few lying around and neither of them worked. Err... anyone know what hanger "type" I should be looking for? Thanks!

Great, thanks @MORNE ! Hopefully this is the one, but I'll look into it a bit more now that I actually know what to google. Pretty sure I'm blowing my bikehub credibility to bits though by revealing how little i know.

I have made peace with the fact that the weekend rider wont ever know all the permutations of every component over the ever increasing range of bikes ....
