    Without knowing the make and model is hard to tell, but I believe this to be a generic jump frame - you just need to find one that is branded, and order the hanger for that.

    Or make one from sheet alu ;-)

    jump bikes dont need gears.

    use a half link (chain) and cog sizes to suit.

  • will that work with a geared hub or do i need to get a conversion kit?

    a geared hub or a hub to take a cassette?

  • If you visit a decen t LBS who has an account with Madison (and theres not many who dont) they should be able to get a hanger just from viewing the frame. The Madison catalogue has a listing with pictures of hangers. It takes a while to identify them but we've had a 100% success so far with loads of strange concoctions/frames (censored .....thats cursed it now hasnt it!!!)

    The hangers arent cheap though...£22 IIRC

  • if you have a small section of perspex then you can lay it over the dropout area and draw out the shape of the area on it, can make it easier when looking for the one on betd etc.
    used that method when i made one for my old carbon frame as it came without one (ebay), traced it out and made it out of perspex and used the hanger of my old frame to get the bottom section right, before getting some alliminium sheet to cut one out of, but does make it a lot easier to get one of the sites as they normally full size pictures.
