    I've been looking at the Airborne bikes and saw that they don't come with a rear derailleur hanger that can be replaced. I've read all over that it is advisable to buy a bike with a dropout. Their reasoning is as follows:

    Could anyone give me some info on this?

    i always thought that the hanger and dropout where put inplace to stop deraileur and framme getting damaged, since it costs so much to straighten and have heat treated, makes more sence to me to have a detatchable hanger if its gonna save me money.
