EMERGENCY DERAILLEUR HANGER
I've been meaning to pick up a couple of these for a while for the shop... Wheels Manufacturing emergency derailleur hangers. This is basically a universal replacement hanger that bolts on under your quick release skewer and allows you to reattach your rear derailleur if you break your stock hanger off... you'll still be able to get some gears, and you can ride home instead of walking. These are great if you have multiple bikes, or are riding with a group. Not intended for permanent use. Great stocking stuffer!
