Bikesdirect sells them directly.

I bought a new bike from them recently, and I had a RD problem. They sent me a new hanger, no questions asked.

I don't get it.

I sent them an email with all the pertinent info, and they replied with something like "Ok, we'll ship it out right away." I got it in a day or two.

I'm usually much more abstruse than that - rankin I think you've been spending too much time in the roady forum.
