Simple question I hope. Are rear mech hangers universal? Or do I need to get a specific match for my frame, or derailleur type?

    Buy yourself a spare and keep it in your toolkit

    I got caught out recently, no spare hanger and had to wait nearly four weeks after a crash for Wiggle to supply me with one

    I now have another one in my toolkit :wink:
