If you’ve ever broken your derailleur hanger or needed some sort of adapter for your bottom bracket or other parts for your bike, then chances are you’ve heard of Wheels Manufacturing. Also known as Wheels MFG, they are one of the world’s largest suppliers of high-quality bicycle derailleur hangers, small parts, repair parts, and specialty tools. They started back in 1988 in Boulder, Colorado as a small machine shop that produced cog removal tools and chainring tools. They quickly grew into a large-scale manufacturing facility that produces over 1000 different small parts for bikes.
It can be difficult to find a bottom bracket to fit your bottom bracket shell, and with so many different standards in the biking world, it can scale the difficulty up more. It can be even more difficult when you factor in the type of crankset you want to use in your bike. Wheels MFG bottom brackets have got you covered. With a wide variety of Wheels Manufacturing bottom brackets to fit all the standards of bikes including 386EVO, BB30, BSA, T47, and SRAM DUB, you’ll find exactly what you need.
Maybe you have a great bottom bracket pressed into your BB shell but the crankset you have doesn’t work with that type, Wheels MFG has adapters that convert your current bottom bracket to work with other cranksets. Shimano and SRAM GXP cranks are excellent but don’t work with BB30 bottom brackets without an adapter.
Breaking a derailleur hanger is a heartbreaking experience, not only because it can quickly end a fun and adventurous ride, but because it can lead to spending days or weeks trying to find a hanger at your local bike shop or online. One thing many riders don’t know is that most bikes have a different derailleur hanger, even bikes made by the same brand. That means there could be 100 bikes with 100 different derailleur hangers. Finding the right hanger can be tough, but Wheels Manufacturing has hangers for almost every bike brand out there, even brands you’ve probably never heard of.
Wheels MFG also has tons of tools so you can install all your parts and maintain your bike. These tools include many different bottom bracket tools and headset tools. They also have a wide variety of small parts that range from hub parts to bearings, fasteners, headset parts, pedal parts, and so much more.
There might not be a universal bottom bracket out there, but if you’re looking for a bottom bracket with angular contact bearings, a derailleur hanger for one of your n+1 bikes, or you’re looking for a headset spacer, then you’ll find everything you need with Jenson USA and Wheels Manufacturing.
