Hello all I am all new to this but recently I have decided to take mountain bike ride but wanted to build my own, so I found the above bike (frame only) and built it from scratch it's all near on completion apart from the rear derailleur hanger to suit the frame please any help on this will be grateful

    Most Carrera bikes use the generic Merida hanger, can be found in Halfords for £8. Not sure if the Titan uses the same as the others though.

    Try the BETD website and compare the frame shape to the options.

    Or you could do what I had to do on one bike and made my own with a lot if filing and dremeling, worked perfectly even if it was a bit 'ghetto' looking.

    Have you asked at Halfords for them to look up what part is needed?

    Photo of the dropout section it bolts to may help!

  • Probably Halfords Hanger A, it's the one on the majority of Carrera MTBs
