    New question here. Need a rear cable stop for V brakes I think. Help?

    I have a mid-90s Gary Fisher HT that has cantilevers on the back. The brake cable is directed around the seatpost in a "noodle" before it continues down to the center sling for the rear cantis. I'd like to put V brakes on the rear and therefore need a cable stop to do so.

    The cable housing does not fit through the noodle around the seatpost and so full length housing I don't think is an option (or is it?)

    Where can I find a rear cable stop so that I can use V brakes on the back?

    If full housing is an option then where might I find a cable guide that I can use at the back of the toptube before the brake cable dives down to the B brake arm.

    Thanks

    We the people ... Here is what you need

    Or, if you are not concerned about how it looks, you can run full length housing and zip tie it to the frame or use some of the neater looking ties ment for holding hydraulic disc brake lines.

    Thank you very much. Indeed that looks exactly like what I need. Let's hope the sizes work out.
