Grail Straddle Cable Yokes!

I'm one step closer to achieving my collection of grail cable hangers.

The DiaCompe quick release roller yokes.

Spooky

Avid Tri-Dangle

Yeah- Tri-Dangle.

You really need an Ibis frame to pair those with.

With a Hand Job cable hanger?





EDIT:

It's really late, I'm very tired and can't sleep. I didn't even think for a moment before I did a google image search for that... Kids, don't try this at home.

At least you didn't do an image search for Polish national cycling team. Really. Don't do it.

I really like those Dia-Compe ones. Even nicer than their modern 1245 model.

Also found a mention of a slightly less shiny QR Dia Compe.

Avid has the tri-dangle style. I was also thinking of the peace sign grail choice. DC has a lesser cable straddle with a sliding opener and roller.

I’m using one of those nice Dia-Compe QR roller yokes on the Gugificazione Miyata 912. It’s really well done, works very nicely and satisfies a need on that bike with its braze-on center pull front brake, but no room for a headset-mounted QR.

Fun stuff but also practical. Believe those Tri-dangle were included with many brands of 'aftermarket' upgrade brakes. I like them.

Also have one of the anodized Peace symbol hanger on the front of my old Stumpjumper. Youngsters are often quick to point it out.... they dig it ;-)

Oddly enough, I saw a pair of those peace symbol yokes on eBay the other day.

I'm very jealous. This thread inspired me to search to see if they were available and I couldn't find any evidence that they were. Where did you get it?
