I wouldn't dream of replacing the brakes. That Suntour XC group, especially the shifters and the roller cam rear brake, was what made me buy the bike. Cable hanger is no problem. I probably have one in my old parts box, but if not, they aren't expensive. I do have a Nitto Dirt Drop stem which will do nicely. I just need to find the right bars.
