Replacement Specialized Roubaix, front derailuer hanger.

I need to source a replacement front derailleur hanger, for a 2010 Specialized Roubaix road bike. They are riveted to the frame. It is the same design front derailleur hanger Specialized, use on all of their 2009-onwards, Tarmac and Roubiax models. If any of you resourceful BIKEFORUMERS, can source one, I am willing to pay $45 for the hanger and $15 postage cost to the UK, via paypal.

Thanks in advance, a desperate cyclist.

Specialized UK, were no help at all as I purchased the bike second hand 2 years ago. They don't supply the part OEM. I either have to get the part from another frame that is broken beyond repair, or find the actual supplier who makes these pieces for Specialized in Taiwan. My hope is somebody on this forum has, or knows somebody who has a broken/unrepairable Specialized Tarmac/Roubaix, frame can recoup $60 for their front derailluer hanger. I will give this company a try.

Of course, since I have no actual experience with this other than buildign up a few bikes with front derailleur braze-ons.....

Aren't they all the same? Couldn't you just find one that would work, regardless of if it's Specialized or not?

Better yet, for quite a bit less than you're offering, just do a web or LBS search for a front derailleur braze on adapter and find a version of this:

Those adapters require a round seattube, or at least round where the clamp goes. Oval and other odd shaped seattubes can't use one.

Maybe not exactly what you're looking for but try here for several options. http://ceeway.com/Bosses.htm Also go to the Homepage and check the Alu/Titanium link for a couple more. Located in Kent, UK. Also may be worth checking some of the CF repair shops there. They may keep some spares in stock.
