Ribble derailleur hangers – Part 1

One of the questions that we hear most frequently is ‘what derailleur hanger do I need for my Ribble frame?’ This is especially true of frames that are no longer in production. In the first instalment of our Ribble derailleur hangers guide, we highlight Ribble framesets sold between 2002 and 2018.

What is a derailleur hanger and what does it do?

You may see this vital component referred to as a derailleur hanger, gear hanger or mech hanger, but they are all one and the same. The hanger secures the rear derailleur to the frame and is designed to bend or break to prevent potentially catastrophic damage to the frame in the event of a crash or accidental impact.

This guide is designed to help you find the correct Ribble derailleur hanger for framesets that are no longer in production. As with any hanger, we would advise you to check your existing hanger against the ones listed below to ensure correct fitting.

  1. Hello, I have a Ribble 7005 SL bought in April 2010, and I need a new mech hanger – a few months ago, none were available, so this is great news. However, mine looks like the one for the SC61/EM2 but not like any for the 7005 in your post – is that possible? Thanks

  2. I would encourage everybody to buy a replacement hanger (or 2) before you need it.
    Nothing more frustrating than having to wait for one to be delivered, (especially if you are outside of the UK and have to wait for customs and couriers)
    I do wonder why there are so many different designs for hangers, (not just for Ribble bikes)?
