I tend to overthink things, but in this case I managed to underthink them. Thanks for the photo. I like the colors--what's the bike?
The SunTour hangars do lend themselves to straddle cable removal better than some others, .... such as the Weinmann hangars that I've used quite a lot. A little work with a file or dremel might take care of that, though. The SunTours do have the advantage of only needing one conventional wrench. Not sure how much that matters in daily life, though.

The frame was built by Rich Powers (sometimes seen on the I-Bob list), back around the year 2000. Nothing too fancy, but he was kind enough to indulge some of my desires for weird braze-on's.
