Where exactly do you mount this part?



I understand that it should be used for cantilever brakes on the rear. I don't necessarily have to use it vith cantis, I have something else in mind, but it's not evident to me where this thing goes.

This is a variation on the theme, and I similarly, don't know where would this be mounted:


"Somewhere in the rear" is my guess, but where/how?

It's a brake cable housing stop that attaches to the seat post clamping bolt. It works in a pinch, but if there are other options (Like a proper braze-on on the frame) they're much better.

I suspected as much. Thank you very much for the clarification.

The lack of braze-ons is the very reason I need this stuff.

Yeah there in the parts catalouge at my bike shop.

If you fit V brakes. You dont need a hanger

Got several of those hangers. They are all really rusty. Not quality items.

You can get them in alloy though

Had real fancy quick release ones from an old touring bike. That bike had centrepull brakes

I know. I intend to use them with cantis. Hence the thread.

The problem with that bolt or the equivalent ones that go in the middle of the seatbolt itself is that you get a very tight curve in your cable housing. Very inelegant at best.
Vélo Orange offers this longer bracket to solve this problem, and I remember seeing a similar homemade solution once.
