Replaceable DR hanger on custom frame?
I'm getting into details of the custom steel frame I'll be ordering in the UK later this year.
Would it be a good idea have it built with replaceable derailleur hangers, so the whole frame doesn't get trashed by this weak point?
If so, any suggestions as to which model to base it on (there are apparently different hangers for all different bike models)? Cannondale? Durability and availability are main issues.
Any disadvantages to going this route?
Thanks for any advice
