    Fork Cable Hanger Question

    I'm looking for a cable hanger that attaches to the arch on a Rock Shox fork so I can use a cantilever brake. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can buy one ?
    Thanks

    For an older black Sid, with the hole in the middle

    Its been Macguyvered. The hole is meant to hold a reflector mount. Actually that's a late-model SID 100 going from the fork crown and colour, and wayyyy to much travel for that IBIS. I'm not sure what's a greater risk...removing the headtube from the leverage from the fork or cracking the brace from the leverage of the cable stop.

    if you're really talented, you can graft your judy lowers onto the SID.
