The Universal Derailleur Hanger replaces your stripped or broken derailleur hanger when you’re out on the trail. It provides you with a portion of your gear range so your journey can continue—it is not meant to be a permanent replacement for a standard derailleur hanger.

WARNING: Read these instructions completely before beginning installation of this product. If you lack the knowledge or tools to perform installation, please have your local professional bicycle mechanic perform the installation. Improper installation can result in loss of control or damage to the bicycle and/or serious injury or death to the rider.


3 & 5mm hex wrenches



Remove the derailleur with a 5mm hex wrench, and then the old derailleur hanger (if possible).


If your frame has horizontal dropouts, use a 3mm hex wrench to install the setscrew toward the back of the bike. For vertical dropouts, mount the setscrew in the front (fi gs. 1 & 2).


Remove the drive-side quick-release skewer nut and thread on the Universal Hanger. It may be easier to turn the non-driveside lever and hold the Universal Hanger in place. Then clamp the quick-release as with a typical skewer nut (fi gs. 3 & 4)


You can now reinstall your derailleur into the Universal Hanger (fi g. 5). Keep in mind that the Universal Hanger forces the derailleur to sit about 6mm outside of where it was before. Be sure to adjust your derailleur’s limit screws accordingly. In some cases it may limit your gear range, eliminating use of the largest rear cog.
