okay thank you very much i am going to contact a few dealers and see if i can get two at least incase this happens again. is this a common weak link on my bike?
The hangers are supposed to break. They are like electrical fuses: they break to protect something else (in this case, the frame).

Is that a Fisher or Trek?

My Fisher looks nothing like that. I believe mine is from around '00/'01 though. Maybe that is why the frame and derailleur hanger look different than mine?


I tried to snap a quick pic of my hanger:

Well WTF then i order that #4 hanger and it DOES NOT FIT. that #4 is not my hanger! plus the part number is diffrent if it were the same part the numbers would be slightly diffrent. like in stead of T****** for trek it would be some thing like JAS******. the trek one i am beliaving is diffrent. i called the nearest bike shop and they are ordering me two of them on monady. i will have by friday and i will tell you weather they are the same or diffrent. if it doesnt fit and they dont make rear hangers for this model any more is it possible to switch to a 98+ rear swing arm? will it mount the same? it looks to. and i know for sure that they have diffrent hangers and they still make them every were for 98+ joshua X frames i have included pictures proving that that hanger is NOT the one i need. clearly seen. please let me know if it is the same one on the trek site so i can stop my order and not have to spend another 25= on not correct hangers. this is so frustrating!!!!one picture facing forwards,rearwards and linned up. they are two diffent peices. whish i had the other part of the broken hanger But that is all over MT. snow some wears.lol please help!! set me straight. the bike is only 13 years young i should have no problem getting parts for this. it is not antique yet. espiccilly when my unle bought this bike he paid $1,200 for it msrp. and know it is a junk frame becuase the hangers are discontinued? come on give me a break here!

13 years is FOREVER in MTBing years. When that frame was being built, full suspension was just being developed-hence the URT design. Since then, things have evolved (and subsequently designs have changed) quite a bit.

You MAY be able to swap a newer triangle on, it at least appears similiar to mine.
