    chain hanger

    A chain hanger can be found on some bike models. Its a little braze-on located on the right seat stay that is designed to hang the chain on when you remove the rear tire thus keeping the chain out of the way. I was hoping to find a clamp on type. someone has sent me an email saying Rivendell may have one if so thats the only one in existance that i have found so far. glenn in phx

    You could get a couple of those metal loop clamps that you tighten with a screwdriver and make them go over the base of some sort of hook you could probably find at home depot / builders square / walmart?

    My '05 Dakar XLT came with the hanger; use it about 2/3 of the time, cuz I've never had one before. (Except, of course, for the one I made for an old HT, made it from the metal retaining strap from a coaster-brake bike and an old derailleur pulley wheel.)
