Question about hangers
#1
I want to replace the rear derailleur on my current mountain bike, but because it is a cheap low end full suspension, it doesn't have a hanger on the frame and only takes a bolt on derailleur. Is there anyway I can adapt the frame so that it is compatible with a hanger? the derailleurs I want all require a hanger. Thank you.

Daniel, it is not worth the upgrade. There is very little functional difference between a TX55 and a 410.

I do have a bag of those hangers, I just installed one on the left (non drive side) of my World Tourist to better stabilize the rear wheel. My WT has a TX51 - it works almost as well as a Deore, not quite as well as a X.9 - and the others were not worth the extra money.
