Ok, so this project happened somewhat by accident, but the results are satisfying. Last November I went to Phoenix's South Mountain and blew up 2 derailleurs in 2 days. Admittedly I tend to go thru about 5 per year. I was very close to ordering a Rohloff steup but wasn't satisfied with the limited compatability, cost, & effort. Then I happened upon the Hanger Banger made by http://www.northshorebillet.com I thought it was a great looking piece but was frustrated that they didn't make one for a 12x150mm hub axle.

Anyway, I still liked the general idea so I ordered one for my Blur and it's qr axle. But John Henry bikes in Canada ended up sending me the wrong piece, meant for a 10mm bolt on axle. I was bummed but started looking at the piece and wondering if I could make use of it on either bike. Turns out, I could replace the black bolt cap on the axle for the Hadley, WITH the Hanger Banger and it fit just fine! Only additional mod was to add a washer between the bolt and the Banger for better load carry.

Check it out!.....

Dusty, sorry you got the wrong hanger banger but it all worked out in the end didn't it?

Mudd, they're $39.95 Canadian $ plus shipping. I use on one my Santa Cruz Tazmon which doesn't have a replaceable dropout and it works great!
