    Trying to source breakaway cable connectors

    I wonder if anyone can help me - I am looking to source something like this in Europe

    I had them for my Dahon Smoothound but I took it apart and have since lost them.

    Thanks!

    If you have a Moulton dealer reasonably nearby, he'd have them.. I have them, but I'm in the USA... barring that, search for bicycle cable splitters in your area..

    You might go direct to davinci and have them US postal service them to you - price is $32, package is tiny so you should be able to get it in a $2 USPS envelope to EU and go under customs radar.

    SJS's are nice too - the vbrake one is smaller than most others which helps inserting it inline between noodle and clamp.

    But more interestingly - supposedly (source: frame maker that won't specify) there is a Taiwanese source for these that are very inexpensive. I'd be interested in buying a large quantity and selling out inexpensively if someone can find this - I've tried a bit with no luck. $10+/each for these is too expensive, but they're too useful.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Going to go with the SJS ones. Da Vinci were looking for $20 for postage!

    I do agree that they are too expensive for what they are.
