Brake "Stop" Hangers for Cantilever Brakes
Ok, so I'm slowly working on re-building an 85 Fuji Sundance that I picked up a month or so ago (I'll get pictures posted eventually when I borrow someones camera).

I replaced the low-end Tektro brakes that were on there with some good Shimano Canti's, and have the bike mostly tuned up.

But due to what appears to have been a wreck at some point in the bikes past, the barrel-adjuster/stop/hanger at the stem is badly mangled. Definitely won't adjust, and wouldn't even fit the end of the housing until I took a drill to it.

But I can't seem to find where to buy a replacement! Ideally, I need one for the rear as well so I can actually use the adjusting function, but it's not in as bad of shape as the front.

Steel rather than aluminum would be a plus for durability, but I'll take what I can get.

Here is one for the HS and maybe one for the rear.

Here are a few more,

Both of those links just go to the main pages for me- but I think is what you meant?

I'm looking for something just like that, but just the adjuster, not the whole hanger. I can just buy the hanger as a whole and take out the adjuster, but it seems like a bit of a waste since I just need the adjusters.

Either way, thanks for both links- Loosescrews especially. I've got lots of small parts that could really use to be replaced.

If all you need is the adjuster barrel they should have but any LBS should have some too.

Nashbar has one that looks pretty good.

I just bought 2 of the steel sunlite cable hangers for $1.68 a piece from niagara:

Haven't got them yet but I imagine they'll do the job. I'm hoping they are heavier rather than flimsy, kind of hard to tell from the crappy photos on their site.

Yeah. Since I just need the adjuster and not the rest of the hanger, I can probably just get the cheap hangers and take the adjusters.
