Hello everybody,

I hope you all are well, this is my first post here since I just HAD to join after finally getting a lot closer to finding out what my bike is after a ton of searching! I have a bike very similar to one of the Aegis types posted previously although without shifters on the frame. I know very little about it and I would love to learn a bit more because I need a replacement rear derailleur hanger! I will post some pictures tonight after work in the hope that some of you might be able to shed some light on it and maybe tell me a bit more about it.

Oops...I see now I need 10 posts before I can post pictures and also cannot share URLs. Are there any ways around this? I would love to show you all the bike!

Definitely along the lines of the Aegis offerings.
I see what you mean about an RD hanger.
No doubt one can be fabricated, or perhaps one of the Cannondale RD hangers that clamp onto both sides of the dropout.

I haven't seen an adjustable dropout like Aegis anywhere else.
But, other than adding the hanger, it should be a mirror copy of the offside one that you have.

I'd start looking for the original Aegis people. There's a website up that does a pretty good imitation of being them, but the bikes for sale seem to be the normal offerings of a clickbait site. The AEGIS Bicycle Story | Aegis Bicycles

So I'd google for postings from when they closed, and see if there was any contact info there. Wayback machine might have some information, too.

For a drop-out hanger on a carbon bike, a person should try Calfee. With the repair service, they may have seen this in the past. Certainly they can fabricate Al and Ti bits.

www.calfeedesign.com

Maybe I should post detailed pics of my TetraPro, But I don't think of it as vintage carbon; 130 rear, threadless fork, sporting Campy 10speed, I think of it as my modern carbon bike. Sub-20# in size 60 with bottle cage and pedals. Frame = 3.0lbs. 5 years left on warranty.

Firstly, thank you very much Robbie for uploading my pictures! Also, thank you to everybody who chipped in for some info on the bike! I have it a few months now but I prefer to use it in dry weather only since I have a daily for commuting to work but it took me so long to get any information at all on it so it's been idle for a while. I haven't had much luck with it in terms of bottom bracket replacement in an incompetent local shop and added to that was a broken derailleur hanger.

I took the DH to another local shop for a potential replacement with no luck so my other choice was having it welded or another one made, costing more than what I paid for the bike itself I think I will check out those links you all suggested and see if I can find one or else I will have to fly back home and make one myself on my little table-top milling machine.

I also wondered if anybody knew anything about T-Gear? I saw in an earlier post that others also couldn't get any results on Google because I'd like to know exactly what my bike is.I did also come across the Aegis site but it seemed just like you said Chuckk that it's not really what you might expect, with no specifications anywhere or anything to do with their older models.

There certainly are some very beautiful steeds posted here, I'm certainly very glad I joined!

My Aegis.
Aegis briefly made track ends for the Aro Svelte frame in the 2000's during Fixed Gear heyday. The track ends were "normale", creating a 120mm rear spacing.
My “abnormale” bike uses 135mm hubs. I machined the track ends to 135mm. I locked the freewheel to create fixed cog function. Cog spacers to create the chain line. 53x19.
This remains my favorite ride, took it out yesterday.

Aegis (the company) is gone. It seems like some factory new-old stock exists.
This ebay account (not mine) created last summer, has some parts now and then:
Account ID “rideaegisbikes”

C4 Air One ready to ride.

The C4 is complete now: Campagnolo 8sp. , 3ttt handlebars, San Marco sadle.

Finished at last.


The final product: 8.8 kg!


Cut down to Size!
The only real problem I had were the front brake calipers. Dual action brakes touched the wheels, so I had to modify the single action rear brakes to fit at the front. Also I had to saw off a bit from the brake Pads to clear the fork.
