no the spooky's are round, i picked up a lot of hangers on ebay the other day that look a little similiar., but not exactly.jhr said:i think thats just the standard Spooky straddle cable hanger. the rear derailer (top routed) housing looks like its going into the hanger but I think thats just an illusion.

Hey thanks for reading!
It's hardly new and improved that design has been around for 12-15 years. You often see one-off widgets on pro's bikes in europe. It's the same type of design as the old avid and tektro ones. It has 2 set screws that pinch the brake cable. I used these for Barbs bike for quite a while and I decided that I didn't really like that part of the design because those small set screws really smash the cable. I prefer the really basic ones that come with the Paul Components brakes with a more traditional design. They all work, but those avid-type ones just end up requiring more frequent cable replacement (once it's been smashed by the set screws, the cable should be replaced any time the height of the hanger is adjusted).musgravecycles said:Thanks for the suggestions, but It's not a Tektro, look at the size and shape of the cutout hole in the middle... I'm wondering if spooky is in the process of releasing a new/improved hanger... Any other ideas...
jeremyb said:yeah i agree wunlap, i used the Peace hangers in the past, and although they look cool, it only has one small set screw which totally crushes the cable and was hard to get it tight enough so it slipped.
Actually, the one I like is basically that gold one.jeremyb said:i took a pic of the one's wunlap was talking about and also of the ones i got off ebay a month ago or so. It uses two small screws and two plates, the screws tighten the 2 plates together, and the cables just get held between the 2 plates (i think it works pretty good, and its 5 grams lighter than the gold one).
