Brake Cable Hardware

Mickey Barrel Adjuster Conversion Kit CAH31 "Mickey" Barrel Adjuster Conversion Kit $3.95 Each buy button

This unit is intended to fit into a top-tube cable stop and provides a fingertip adjustment for your rear brake. This is very desirable on drop-bar conversions of bicycles originally built for upright bars (upright-bar brake levers usually incorporate a barrel adjuster, while drop-bar levers do not.)



DESCRIPTION

CAH59 Fork Crown Housing Stop $9.95 Each buy button

This unit allows you to use traditional cantilevers or center-pull cantilevers without a housing stop on the headset. It is designed to bolt onto the front of the fork crown. This can solve a number of problems, and can improve cable routing by letting the cable get around even a low handlebar stem without a sharp kink.

This is not intended for use with suspension forks. It may be possible to make it work with some suspension forks by mounting it on the upside-down "U" bridge that connects the legs, but it must not be mounted on the fork crown of a suspsension fork as it will cause unpredictable brake application as the fork responds to bumps.



DESCRIPTION

CAH60 Fork Crown Housing Stop $10.95 Each buy button

Similar to CHA59, above. Sleeker design. Includes cable adjuster and two recessed nuts of different lengths.
