Hanger Banger

Postby Aux1 » Wed Jun 20, 2007 12:57 pm

Anybody has this thingy?
What usually happens if your mech accidentally catches something on the trail? What has more chance to get bent, the mech or the hanger? I'd say the hanger because more leverage acts on it.

If you had a hanger banger, my reasoning is it would protect the hanger, and the mech would bite the dust. So I think the thing is good to protect frames with fixed hangers, but bad for those with replacable hangers because the hanger is cheaper than the mech... right?

To clip... to slip no more, and by clipping to end the buttache and the thousand natural shocks that ryders are heir to; tis a consummation devoutly to be honed.
