    Derailluer Hanger for Giant 2018 Escape 2 ?

    My friend bent the hanger on his Escape 2. I am repairing it. I brought the old one to the local Giant dealer. The dealer gave me Hanger #167. Which was the number I kept coming up with during online search. However the new one has a metal flange around the drop out that the old one didn't and thus it doesn't fit.

    I called the dealer this morning. They verified that the 2018 Escape 2 model on their shop floor does not have this flange but using their Giant resources cannot get this hanger, only the #167 that has the flange. They want to bench grind off this flange so that it will seat properly. This might be my friends only option but I wanted to put this out there in case there are any Giant folks knowledgeable about this situation. Personally I find it hard to believe

    I attached an image. See the flange that goes around the drop out

    Just grind it off and move on. Get another one and do the same while your at it, he'll need it someday and won't miss a ride.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    I am amazed that the dealer can't get a hanger directly from Giant. They may be temporarily out of stock but there is no way they don't normally stock hangers for all of their bikes. I'd call another hopefully more competent Giant dealer.

    I certainly agree. The only Giant dealers are the 4 that surround my area and all owned by the same dealer. I sent a message via facebook to Giant explaining the situation, hopefully they will reply.

    Did you check Wheels Manufacturing's website? They have just about any kind of hanger.

    I did, and the only one they show on their site is the #167 you see in the image. In fact, they even made the original one it seems.
