WARNING: This cable hanger is designed for use with cantilever brake systems and a traditional straddle cable. In the event of a cable failure with these systems, the straddle wire may fall into your tire causing a sudden stop that could lead to a crash causing serious injury. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND the use of a reflector bracket that extends beyond and under the straddle wire and cable hanger to prevent the straddle cable or cable hanger from making contact with the tire in the event of brake cable slippage or failure.

NOTE: Check with the manufacturer of your fork for specific requirements for both maximum number of spacers below the stem and/or above the stem. Adding this 10mm-tall cable hanger may change the existing number and height of spacers that is appropriate for the fork, or require an adjustment of spacer choice when installing it.
