Porkchop BMX

Hi,
I posted something similar in the BMX forum, but I'm really C&V. I had been looking at their site for Brake Cables. When I went back to order, item was gone. Does anyone have a contact option besides the only one I seem to be able to find that needs an order number? I can't be the only one here that uses their site! Thanks!

I buy from them all the time…. Best prices on kool stop replacement pads. I do have this email address I’ve used to contact them - info@porkchopbmx.com

Hope it helps!

Update

Thanks for the contact information. I emailed them and got a response right away. They've been trying to get the item I was looking for back in stock for a very long time. They seem like a great company. Maybe not too much for road C&V, but for MTB, and just general cool stuff, they seem pretty Rad!

I ran one of their rings on a fixed gear bitd.

Lots of cool Dia Compe housing stops available. I especially like this one.

Porkchop's been my go-to place for 80's style brake cables casings for many years now, as I could never find them anywhere else. Even the older bike shops in my area (American Cyclery, A Bike Odyssey) that still sell C&V stuff, don't sell it anymore.
Especially for the nice clear plastic covered ones.
I'm afraid once those are not made anymore and Porkchop quits selling them, we'll have a hard time finding good equivalents.
Long live Porkchop!!

I've only ever gotten stuff from Porkchop by way of eBay. I was actually surprised to learn they had a website, a few years ago when I was looking for something weird.
