Broken derailleur hanger

I broke mine, haro escape frame. I was wondering if in general, derailleur hangers are cross compatable?

nope.

you have to get one for that specific frame. should cost you around $25 and probably a week for it to arrive at the shop, unless your shop keeps them in stock. if they're a haro dealer, they should have them.

Go find a Haro dealer. My friend just bent his on his 04 Bighit and he went to the LBS (which is a Specialized dealer) and got one for $20.

derailleurhangers.com, they are machined hangers so they are stronger than stock, shipping is very quick too.

most of those come from wheels manufacturing, or directly from the manufacturer. it doesn't make much sense to say "these hangers are stronger," because they're still going to bend. they're designed to bend, so you shell out $20 or so, instead of twice as much or more for a new derailleur.

"Strong" derailleur hangers are not a good thing. You want them weak so they will break before your derailleur or frame.
