The Abbey Bike Tools Hanger Alignment Gauge Complete Tool (HAG) is the last hanger tool you'll ever have to buy.
WHY YOU NEED ONE
The derailleur hanger acts as the cornerstone when it comes to ensuring the modern drive train will work properly. With modern bikes getting as many as 13 cogs into the space that used to hold eight, it's never been more important to make sure the hanger is perfectly straight. Sadly many hanger tools just aren't capable of achieving this kind of precision.
WHAT MAKES THE HAG THE BEST
Abbey Bike Tools went through extra steps to make this tool half a precision measuring instrument and half a pry bar.
- Tolerances as tight as a quarter of a thousandth of an inch (.0063mm) in some critical dimensions of this tool.
- Ability to lock in the feeler so you don't have to second guess your measurement after bumping it on the tire.
- Top half of tool will rotate out of the way of fender stays and frame tubes.
- Feeler gauge stick stores inside the top half of the tool, which is very handy for the traveling mechanic.
- T-bolt extends past the tool for access to those problematic hangers found on some modern full suspension bikes.
- Compact at just under 11" ( 28cm).
- Re-buildable. While ideally your HAG should be sent back for a rebuild, it is possible to do it in the field by replacing the brass bushing in the T-Bolt.
- Compatible with the three most common wheel sizes, 26, 27.5/650B and 700/29).
