Gran Compe Roller Straddle Cable Hanger
These hangers add the perfect touch of elegance to any bike with cantilever or center-pull brakes. They were the style of hangers used on some of the finest constructeur bikes by Singer, Toei, Routens, Alp, Reyhand, Goeland, etc...
This is perfect for setting up a Canti or center pull. Yeah its $18 but it’s like the Grand Seiko of cable straddles. Over engineered and looks beautiful. Doesn’t make canti brakes any easier to set up tho.
I just like the idea of the straddle cable being able to easily shift to (I think) help let the brake arms balance. These are very nice and smooth. Time will tell if they gunk up.
Works smoothly and looks good. Zero complaints
It centers the break shoes very well.
