everybody seems to have broken a set at some point in their MTB days, so can anybody spare a barrel that secures the straddle cable in the brake?

Its just the small barrel with a grub screw in each end!

sorry pal have no spares, dreading the day that this happens to mine. I think that and the unique looking straddle cable are the achilles heel of HO's.

There are phases of spare bundles of them on ebay all bagged up for such spares emergencies.

Nope, but they are the right size and shape. Plus at 99p i don't think you'll find a more cost effective alternative.
