Cyclocross season is hot and underway and it's a good time to point out the elegance of this drop cable stop cooked up in part by the mechanic for team HRS Rock Lobster. It's nothing more complicated than a bent piece of sheet metal (pick a fancy alloy for light weight if you want) with a couple of holes. There are tons of cable hanger designs out there, from complex to simple. It is claimed that this one adds a bit of compliance to the brake - fork system minimizing fork chatter.
