As long as you have all the parts (don't the Huret RDs have some fancy keyed washer that's necessary?) I would imagine it *should* be just the same as a hanger...


If you're thinking of spending 4 pounds on a claw, I'd just keep looking for a good, used derailleur. I've seen some QUALITY RDs go for like $10 on eBay.
