Phew! Just in case anyone else is in this situation, the folks at https://derailleurhanger.com/ were very helpful and helped me find one that fits: it was the "Hanger 49": https://derailleurhanger.com/product...eur-hanger-49/ which is a little smaller than the one in the photos I posted.

However, this is stretching out longer and longer - it seems that in the accident I had the front derailleur also broke, and it is hard to find one that fits this Eclipse bike.

Does anyone have any advice on how to find a front derailleur hanger that works?

The mechanic said they tried a Shimano Sora Braze-On front derailer hanger but it is a very tight fit and maybe an older model (10+ years older) would work, but they cannot find the part.

Thanks so much! It would suck to have to buy a new bike after all this effort, because it is only a few dozen dollars for these parts, although they are proving to be very hard to find for these Eclipse bikes.

In case anyone else needs this:

I found a replacement by searching for Shimano Claris Braze-on triple 8 speed front derailleur. It cost about $18 with $20 shipping from Japan on eBay and/or Amazon or UK stores. It replaced the Shimano Sora the mechanic recommended.

The part name and code is:

Shimano Claris FD-R2030-F Front Derailleur 3x8 Speed (Direct mount / Braze-On) EFDR2030F

And it should work for replacing older bikes' derailleurs. The amazon reviews are helpful: https://www.amazon.com/SHIMANO-FD-24.../dp/B00CABR500

Happy ending! Back on my bike. Parts are listed above in case anyone needs them. So much better to spend a few hundred dollars after this accident rather than a few thousand on a new bike! I hear new bikes (especially 62cm+) are hard to find during the pandemic...


Eclipse bicycle with front and rear derailleur, and north star cruiser handlebars.
