Older, exposed-nut version is great for 27" frame and fork to 700c wheel conversions. These are a super value, very high quality with re-fillable cartridge type brake shoes. Overall bolt length: 50 mm (Front)
- Braided transverse cable
- 2.5 mm Allen wrench
- Cable end crimp
Problem Solvers Front Cable hangerFor 1 inch steerer tubes. Decent cable hangers for center-pull calipers or cantilevers are getting hard to find. These are nice rigid alumimum ones, with a standard 6 mm adjusting barrel. In silver or black.
These use external nuts for mounting to the frame/fork. They come with a medium-length centerbolt installed for rear external nut mounting, and the package includes a complete long (front) center bolt assembly as well, so you can set them up for either front or rear use.
They come with a decent (Right-hand)lever, cable and black housing.
The stock brake shoes are pretty crummy...for best results, upgrade with Kool Stop salmon, any of the threaded-shaft types, especially the BMX/Mountain model. Click here to determine the correct brake reach for your bike.
