Thumbs up Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Use any "modern" derailleur (like this type)

on any bike with long dropouts (like we were discussing)


Really, though, you can craft one from a piece of aluminum or thin steel flat stock. I made one of aluminum before, and the bolt on the derailer was hard enough to cut threads in it. It worked fine but flexed a little when cross chaining heavily on a 20" bike.

Ebike stop is good company, they have the fancy "emergency hanger" $13. I've bought from them before, fast shipping.

Here's another emergency hanger that gives some adjustment $15

The bike looks ALMOST exactly like Ibedayank's pic, except there are cable guides under the length of the down tube.

I am glad that there is an adaptor available to hang a good-quality 7-speed derailleur. I'll definitely get that piece!
