    brake straddle cable hangers

    what cable hangers are you guys using. i'm using the ones tha came witht he spooky and i'm not too happy with them...i'm afraid to overtighten the hanger so i don't strip the little set-screws and then when i jam on the brake levers the cable pulls through just enough to flatten and strighten the strands of the brake cable.

    looking for replacements and looking for suggestions

    im just afraid to overtighten them. i cranked the hell out of the 2.5 mm (LOL) set screws against themselves..so far so good, but i think ill switch to a traditional style soon...or when I have to re-cable my brakes.

    yeah... you have to crank the ell out of them...... but they normally hold. I have been using them for 2 years.... Spooky, 4ZA all the same setup. If you want to upgrade, go look at Pauls components, they have a nice unit.
