I knew I'd seen these somewhere - may not be original but will work in the same way.

If your wanting a rocker then i use one same as above and it works fine, though for some reason the black one is cheaper :? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TEKTRO-CANTI ... 0010.m2109

Yes this is the likely fall back as finding an OEM seems unlikely.

The FSX came with a cable stop though as far as i know.


Mine are the earlier non-Judy FSX'ssssss :? with the lower style arch.
I would prefer that simpler cable stop as shown on the Judys as it might allow me to use a Chill Pill with my OnZa HO brakes - but a) I think I've got even less chance of finding that style of cable stop, and b) the lower arch may only suit a rocker set up due to proximity to the tyre :(

Yes, sorry i edited my post when i realized yours was the earlier FSX.

Another alternative, though maybe just as hard to find, is the other arch for them:

Yes that would be spot on!
But as you say - probably hard to find.
The majority of this style of FSX for sale seem to be offered without a stop or rocker, probably removed to suit v-brakes then never replaced.
Another option is one of these;

The hunt for an OEM item will go on regardless.
