Rear Derailleur hanger replacement and no name frame

I was just wondering on the carbon fiber no name frames that that are on ebay, where would anyone get a replacement derailleur hanger?

When I bought my no-name (which I am pretty happy with) back in 2010, I emailed the seller before I completed the transaction to request two extra hangers. There were included at no charge.

Expect still to drop by the LBS to get the alignment tweaked once the bike is together .

How do you align a carbon frame?

When you have NFI, all you can do is browse https://www.derailleurhanger.com/ and find one that looks like it'll fit.

At my co-op we have a little collection of them, which is handy... yesterday I spotted a decent frameset minus its hanger, and the first one I pulled out of the tub fit like a charm... but often a bit of filing or dremel work is required to make it fit...

I can actually imagine a future where frame makers have settled on a mere half-dozen types of hanger or so, but I have no idea how to get there. ISO up, h0nkies.

the removable /replaceable derailleur hanger is what you align/ or your index shifting is whack.

When you get that alignment right, chain chatter will be silenced and your bike will purr as you pedal. Seriously.
