I always carry a hanger. I gave away the one for the YT Capra when I sold it (seemed the decent thing to do) and I have one for my Whyte T130 and now my Focus Jam2. I carry them in my pack, although now I think about it, I should remove the one for the Whyte as I doubt I will ever ride the bike again.

ESommet VR
sort of

I carry the bent hanger and retaining nut from my first ESommet in my hotlaps gripper bag.
The original hanger wasn't bent while riding. it was bent in transit between CRC and here on it's warranty holidays.
so I straightened it and ordered a replacement.

I tend not to twat my mech off stuff and haven't bent/broken a hanger in over 10 years and probably 50000+ miles.
Crashes do happen though so you never know.

I can’t find one on the web , is it a focus dealer specific item or is there an alternative?
Thanks in advance

Focus Jam2 Mech Hanger KD325917010

I Googled that and got this website (wait a while until it converts to English)
Focus Schaltauge - JAM, BOLD - seit 2018

I checked against mine and its deffo the correct one.

This site may be cheaper, but you are going to have to look through the pics to find the correct one.

Hang her? I barely knew her!
Sorry. I carry hangers for all my bikes, too. I guess I don't ride hard enough, though, because I ain't needed one yet, knock wood, at least not on the trails.

Yup. Carry one for the Levo and have done for whatever my current bike is, after getting caught out on a spesh enduro about 20 years ago.

Yup have always carried a spare for my Kona, and now carry a Focus ebike one on rides.
A few months ago was out on my wife’s Jam² and the rear mech got munched in spokes and tore off hanger. I hadn’t never realised then bolt holding mech on had worked loose And it swung Into spokes when I landed a jump..
Fixed it and got spare hanger, and soon after got myself a Sam² to avoid trashing her bike again :)
