Need Straddle Cables For Centerpull Brakes???

Hi All

Iím having a hard time finding straddle cables for the center pull brakes like the Dia-Compe or Weinnman center pull brakes. I checked all the bikes shop in my area and nobody can come up with any source at all. Just wondering if any of you have any leads for me where I can get 2-sets of these cables.


Thanks

Quality Bike Parts has two "Double Ended Center Pull Rear" straddle wires in their catalog. Unfortunately there is no picture in the on-line version.

Maybe one of these will work? Any bike shop can order them.

Go here and search on straddle cable. They have Dia Compe

Oops, I was thinking straddle cable for cantilevers. They may also have them for the calipers you show.

You might also call Harris Cyclery (www.harriscyclery.com) up in Boston. Sheldon Brown seems to specialize in old bike parts and may have some wires stashed away.

Thanks, I found them on this site. The cables I have are starting to come apart.


Again Thanks!
