Thank you for the reply Golden boy, I know next to nothing about derailleur, so this bike will help me practice. When you say "same as a hanger" do you mean "same as the adaptor on ebay" or that the hanger on the derailleur will do? If you're talking about the hanger on the derailleur, my frame doesn't have the little hole for the little screw on the hanger, does that not matter?

yeah, I know but I've got the front, rear derailleur and gear levers already from huret. Might be stupid but I like it being the same brand. All those parts came from a old peugeot premiere that would have been too small for me.
EDIT: Maybe I should have mentioned that this is going to be my "pub" bike, something that I can play with but not be gutted if someone nicked it.
