Gear hangers are designed to bend or break, in order to avoid more expensive damage to your frame. Therefore gear hangers are originally made from 6061 cold forged aluminium, mostly anodized in a silver colour. The hardness matches the level that ensures that external forces or impacts will not bypass the gear hanger and damage the dropout part of your frame. Never bend back a gear hanger. First of all it is quite difficult to get it precisely aligned, but it is also very dangerous.
- All Marwi's gear hangers are 100% the same as the original gear hanger on your bike, made by the same frame manufacturer.
