    Need a front derailleur hanger (braze) for aluminum seat tube

    See picture for details.


    I'm just throwing this out there...I really only need one of these and I've found that I can either buy 1 for around $4 and add $15 in shipping (seriously!?) or buy 5 of them for $25 shipped.

    Neither seems like a great deal for me so I guess I'm wondering if anyone out there has a spare or two they wouldn't mind sending my way for $10 (1) or $15 (2). I'd also consider buying a set of 5 and then sending 3 of them to someone if they want to split the cost.

    FYI, I'd love to just ditch a braze mount and go with a clamp but I have a very aero seatpost. I've already had a guy try to put a "brace" on it to attempt to strengthen the cracked tab but then that only lasted a few weeks...So this is my last option to save a really nice racing frame.


    ...and yes, that's a hideous purple chainring. I bought the cheapest 44T I could find to try and bridge the gap between 39 and 53 until I got this fixed.

    You need to weld Aluminum, not braze. Welding on Alu usually necessitates re-doing the heat treatment or suffer a reduction in strength to the tubing. You might want to consider replacing it with a rivit-on derailler hanger, attachment could also be further strengthened with a bit of epoxy.

    Neat frame, I still have a EL-OS tubed Quattro Assi frame that I bought new and raced on back in the early 90's.

    I'd just box it up and send it to Frank TW if you really want to save a "really nice racing frame."
