The hanger on my Parlee Z4 is pretty soft, I'm not sure if it started like that or the previous owner straightened it and few times, but it was far easier to adjust compared to my other bikes.

Before I buy another from Parlee, has any one stumbled across a Wheels Mft. hanger or other than will do the job? Wheels list nearly every brand other than Parlee but one of their hangers might well fit.

hey

I've used the pilo hangers (for a cervelo...). these are locally (israeli) cnc'd, high quality.
They ship WW (they have an ebay store).

I wonder if harder material is safe for your frame.

Hanger is there to prevent your frame damaged. It breaks first, so your frame will still safe. With harder material, it will stand still in bigger forces, where the frame can't stand anymore.
Am I wrong?

Possibly not, but the Z4 hanger is pretty soft in my experience also. And if you rarely crash or are sponsored then perhaps the lottery is OK. For example I totalled 1 hanger in 20 years while jra.

An alternative to prevent catastrophic failure is a break-away bolt in the RD.
