Bikes are complex beasts with suspension, disc brakes and fancy linkages. When something goes wrong out on the trail there are always solutions and they generally involve zip ties.

Bodge Tweak Hack: Part 4

Thankfully the days of the mech hanger being part of the frame are behind us but Alex Cartwright suffered from this fiendish design decision on his Orange Patriot. Smashing his mech and hanger to pieces in Fort William Alex was left with what turned out to be a fruitless search for another Patriot rear end.

Not wanting to part with his frame he found a hanger from a Commencal frame and got to work. Sandwiching the hanger between the frame and hub the bodge worked a treat and got Alex rolling again in no time, he even bought more of the same to do the same with giving him a few spares. Ten out of ten for grinder and file work there Alex.
