Firstly, am i right in thinking that Onza HO Canti's came with Chill Pills as standard?

Anyhoo, i got some front HO's without straddle cable or means of attaching to my brake cable :(

So, has anyone got one straddle cable and Chill Pill (or whatever) suitable for a front Onza HO?

Oh and i need some pads, was just gonna get some Red Kool Stops from CRC?

Cheers :)

Loads of chill pills on fleabay. Try also Supercyles in Nottingham (new owners of Onza), they seem to be slowly resurrecting the old onza line up.

Dumb question time (again)...

The HO's don't have a clamp on one side for the straddle cable (like Shimano Canti's do), so the straddle would need to have the lug on both ends.

I think that the original onza cable had an adjustable lug that could moved and clamped with a grub screw to alter the length of the straddle?

Paul,

I found one of those things to go with the brakes if all else fails, that spares box is a bloody mess....
