I've got 2 FSXs (1 FSX carbon/ti and 1 Judy FSX) with normal braces for canti brakes. However, both of them are missing the part where the outer cable stops (the hanger part or whatever it's called).

So the question is: What kind of a part do I need for them and are similar parts available somewhere ?

I have the same problem oddly enough........anyone with the solution?

I did make up a widget a few years back, but the brace seemed very flexy. I would like to know the 'proper' solution!

Kai,

Not pretty, but would this work with a bit of adaptation...?

I think that somewhere I've stumbled across something better whilst looking for a cable guide for the s-works. Will have a dig around my bookmarks later...

the piece is a little aluminium rod thing, with a cable stop in it. ive taken mine off but will have a scrabble around to try and find it. it would be very simple to replicate if you were clever at that sort of stuff :)

anyone got a pic of the real thing.....maybe we can then get a few copies made.
