I posted this in the Bicycle Mechanics forum, but maybe here I can find an answer as well.
I have a Specialized Stumjumper ca 2000. It uses this derailler hanger:
I am going on a tour today and last minute I pulled it off the bike thinking that I might need a spare. Now that I am looking at it I wonder if it is designed such that the failure points are the screws that mount the hanger to the frame (they are particularly small). If so I would only need to find spare screws rather than the hanger itself.
Can somebody give me an opinion on my reverse engineering police work here?
