|My rear derailleur hanger on my 2000 EV2 is fatiguing; it bends inward toward the cassette; I bent it back, but I'm sure it won't take much more of this.
No local LBS carries Bianchi now. I doesn't seem that Bianchi USA sells such things direct, either. I could call several dozen Bianchi shops around the country, but if someone knows of any source for a hanger, I'd really appreciate a contact. I sort of need it fast, too.

College Park Bicycles (and MT Airy Bicycles) both carry bianchi stuff. Much more local than SC. Call at 301-864-2211

|Thanks, both of you. I'm finding most everyone is at Interbike.

|Amazingly, the replaceable hangers from a Gary Fisher (at least from a Sugar) will fit. My friend bent the hanger on his Bianchi & I compared it to several I had.It matched up almost perfectly, the Fisher had a sharp corner at on spot where the Bianchi's had a curve(the ONLY difference), 2 minutes with a file & it worked. A real easyt solution, especially if oyu can't find one from bianchi.
I would bet they are made at the same (Taiwan) factory.
