I just bought my first road bike, and was wondering if there is any way to place a replaceable derailleur hanger on a frame that was made in 1988? To be more specific the bike is a Cannondale SR500. It seems that only newer bikes have this abiity, but I could be wrong. I have tried looking online for hours for any information relating to this, and did not find anything.

Thank you for any input.
Wheels manufacturing, north shore billet and others make aftermarket replacement derailleur hangers - a lot of them. If you have the old hanger you have a good chance of finding a replacement one. If your shop has access to at least Orange - hit that first. Worst case scenario is you get someone to CNC machine you one of the hangers. It's just AL right.
