While most cantilever cable hangers have built in barrel adjusters, some don’t. Since I run the Speedvagen x ENVE Integrated stem, I don’t have an in-line adjuster. Before, I used to just re-clamp my yoke or canti if I needed more stopping power and that’s just not right.
These little things have been floating around on the internet since 2011, but I completely forgot about them until last December…
Hunter Cycles makes these nifty straddle cable barrel adjusters called Nugz and they have made my life on my cantilever brake bikes a lot easier. I’ve got them on my cross and tourer and they’re so simple. Sure, some companies like TRP have a similar design, the Nugz work on Paul canti brakes. That’s all I care about.
All the details for ordering are over at the Hunter Cycles Flickr. I kinda wish Paul would place a large order and stock them though! Wink wink.
