Where to find Genesis mech hangers
Any good LBS should be able to find a replacement if you take the remains of the old hanger in so it can be matched on a chart.
Unfortunately most bike manufacturers are very bad at documenting which hangers they use on which models and there are over a hundred different hangers available with no universal system of identification.Posted 5 years ago
Edinburgh bikes are a genesis dealer and told me that they’re no longer available for my one year old latitude. also emailed genesis direct twice and got no reply. luckily only wanting one as a spare so not desperate but its a pretty poor show by genesis and one of their dealers. think i’ll end up getting a wheels manufacturing one if i can find the one that fitsPosted 5 years ago
Cheers guys. I’ve tried emailing Genesis for the second time, so fingers crossed.
EBC were one of the shops who got the wrong thing in. Clearly, they’re not sure what’s what!
I’ve been in to two shops with the old hanger. One I never heard from again, the second got the wrong one.
Kinger – thanks for the code. I’ll look in to that.Posted 5 years ago
TBC – It’s definitely similar. I’ll have a look when I get home and may well drop you a line. Cheers.jamesoSubscriber
I really think that decent bike manufacturers should start including a spare mech hanger with the sale of a full bike or new frame. The actual cost of them must be pretty minimal and it would be a nice touch.
Won’t happen of course but still……
Pinnacle have done that for years, I’m sure there’s others too.
Anyway – there was a pdf I made while at Madison with pics of all RB/Genesis hangers, the codes etc included. I expect it’s around somewhere – DS may be a good guy to ask (the northern shops will know who I mean)Posted 5 years agomanwomanmanMember
This should help – spoke with Albert at Genesis -v helpful.
I had same problem with my 2013 CX Disc and my LBS sent the wrong one. You need the 99002N if its the disc versionn
It’s definitely a twin bolt style. Your LBS may have got muddled with the Vapour – they use a different (non disc) dropout on that that uses a single bolt hanger.
It’s the same as used on a Ridgeback Flight (disc) model – http://www.simpsoncycles.co.uk/product.php/3985/ridgeback_gear_hanger_drop_out_insert_type_13_flight (#99002N).
Hope this helps
