Will a Chris King Grip Nut work with a Cable Hanger

I'm stuck having to use center pulls (Dia Comps probably) for the single speed I'm building. I thought I could use some drop bolts to get some shimano 105s on it but they still don't give me enough reach. Problem is I've already bought and installed a Chris King grip nut headset and I can't find anything on their site that tells me if I can put a cable hanger on it or not. Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.

Cable hangers are super cheap on ebay. Just buy it and try it. Or, call King and ask. It ain't that hard.

From Chris King's website, at the bottom of the GripNut page:


The GripNut™ design does not allow for the use of spacers or cable hangers.
Your best bet would be to get a 2Nut conversion kit from them, which would allow you to run a cable hanger without ditching your whole headset.

Doh! Can't believe I missed that. Thanks guys. Actually I was able to pull it off after all with the drop bolt on the front and get just enough reach to use the 105s. Thanks again for your help.
