Straighten/Align Bent Derailleur Hanger Without Special Tool

Posted by on in Derailleurs, Frame & Fork


I show how to fix a bent derailleur hanger without expensive tools like Park Tool’s DAG-2 Derailleur Hanger Alignment Gauge. This repair is meant for steel frames with integrated hangers. If you have a replaceable hanger, I recommend you just replace it. Do not attempt to straighten the hanger using the derailleur. You will likely bend the derailleur and then have a bent hanger and derailleur. You do this at your own risk.
