    Threaded steerer cable hanger??

    My 'round town beater is a 1991 Diamondback Response Comp.

    It came with a Marzocchi XC-200 front fork. The MF FINALLY lost its ability to hold air.

    1 1/8" threaded steerer + quill stem.

    LBS sold me a basic rigid fork for $25

    All is well ... BUT ... the Marzocchi has an integrated brake cable hanger that absolutely cannot be transferred to the new rigid fork.

    Anybody know if there are still threaded cable hangers around?

    Will THIS ONE work??

    TIA!

    EDIT: how about this one?:



    EDIT: or ... maybe this one ... from Harris Cyclery:



    It's fork-crown-hole mounted, which might be ideal!

    Yes, those are all viable options.

    I use the Problem Solvers ones shown one two bikes. On one, it's attached to the outside of the quill stem as it's on a American Classic HS, which doesn't allow for spacers.

    The other, it's a part of the stack of the threaded headset, where it doubles as an extra spacer. The noodle part is what set these apart from others, I've used them without it and these are great because the angle of entry is variable. You don't need the hanger to be threaded to be a part of the HS stack.
    Here's the outside mounted one .....

    Thanks, Garth.

    You actually answered a lot of the questions that I hadn't yet formulated.

    Gotta' see how much room is left in the stack, and get ahold of thickness info for some of the hangers. That may well decide the issue for me....

    Beautiful bike, btw....

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    The headset mounted fork hangers sometimes result in brake chatter when used with a less-than-totally-stiff fork... and the remedy is to replace with a fork mounted hanger. Also, the fork mounted hanger is more similar to the setup that was normally fonud on suspension forks like your marzocchi, so it *might* make the change easier.

    Neil0502,

    The Problem Solvers Hanger measures 10.15mm in thickness, for your factoring in stack space. I have some other branded ones too, and they are all about the same, +/- .10mm.
