A few of these were discovered in a box of retro parts.

Useful or just a gimmick?

After just setting some Canti's up with these I can say definitely useful! They were a doddle to set up and allow you to make really fine adjustments to get them pulling absolutely perfect! 8)

YES
The dogs bollocks ,i know a couple of old MTBers that have these fitted and swear by them
Takes the stretch out of a straddle wire by doing away with it completely.The look very nice and are very functional too.Each arm can be precisely fettled
In this, the fettle kingdom of Britain ,thats the tops :D

Please could you post a picture of the mounting hardware and small bits that came with this?

I have one I used back in the day and have located the straddle part but the hardware is in a massive box of hardware from back in the day so locating the correct bits is a nightmare as I don't know what it should have. Any help greatly appreciated.
