Hi guys, I really need some help on this.

I'm building a winter / work bike and just bought a cheap frame from ebay. It looks like a Barracuda Slalom from the 00's, images will tell below. I'm converting XT parts from another bike onto this frame and yes my own fault did not realise there is no mech hanger on the frame:



Please can you point me in the right direction of which hanger I need, ive always had frames with the hanger on so im a mech hanger virgin haha.

Everyone's help is very much appreciated,

    that frame does not use any hanger,

    it uses a mech like this


    but you could use a Hone or Saint mech that bolts onto the axle of a Saint compatible hub.
