Dropout hanger fixing bolt missing
edited July 2017
Is it relatively safe to commute without it until the new one arrives? As I see it the axle nuts hold the hanger in place. Now that I think about it I should've ordered a spare one as well.
Maybe. There's lots of different styles of attaching the hanger - Some would be fine, others would be risky. What bike is it? A picture may help as well.
Indeed, it depends on the style of hanger/bolt(s) you have really, some are held very well in place by the axle nut/QR, others are not.
