how do i install this??

Hello All
After doing some research lookls like this fork mounted hanger will help the braking on my cross bike
I am not sure how i would install this. Would i need to dissemble the entire front brake set up to add this into the system?


Thank you for any help you can provide, much appreciated

It mounts into a hole on the front fork. You may need brake cable housing and brake cable.

It depends. If the hanger has a cable slot, you'll just have to release the brake and slide the cable through the slot after mounting the hanger to the fork. If the hanger doesn't have a cable slot, you'll have to release the anchor cable on the brake, pull it out and feed it through the adjustment barrel and reattach it to the brake.

There are two ways of attaching the anchor cable. One is a cable hanger which terminates at a straddle cable hanger. The other, called a link wire, terminates at the brake arm. This should be the only disassembly you should have to perform

Two further suggestions:

You may need a longer bolt than the one supplied depending upon the thickness of your fork crown; I got mine from the local hardware store along with a Nylok nut.

I have found that link wires are a pain; if you have them I suggest that you get a straddle wire/carrier setup. I have had good luck with Problem Solvers Wide Cable Carrier: Problem Solvers
