No frills, but it works

I wasn't looking for adjustability, but just some way to anchor the housing for a center-pull brake. It does that well, but I needed to sand down the mounting hole to make it thin enough to fit between the blades of the seatpost clamp.

Pros: No frills, it just works

Cons: The casting is a little thick

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

This hanger provided us with a simple solution for a brake line problem, and it did the job, although you are relying on something hanging off a bolt to guide your cabling. It works fine, given that the task we expect is pretty sketchy. If you have no other solution, but need this to cap off the housing on the end of a cable run, it will work, just might need you to reach down and adjust every once in a while.

Cons: Hard to keep the connection sturdy.

For the price you can't complain

It's a cable hanger for only a few bucks. Sure, it should be a little longer and have a barrel adjuster, but it's cheap. Tektro should also make a fancier version and charge more.

Pros: Works, shiny, light, simple

Cons: Short, no tension adjuster

Useless

This hanger is too short. I was unable to get a clean cable run through this thing. The cable always rubbed where it exited the hanger. Buy the Surly hanger, it is longer and has a built in adjuster. More money, less headache.

Pros: Well, it is shiny.

Cons: Does not work. Also, once you open the package, the little doo-hickey that the housing sits in will fall out on the floor and bounce under something heavy.

I agree with some of the other reviewers. The cable hanger is relatively attractive and it does what you need at a decent price, it should be longer and it should have an adjustment barrel, as opposed to brass cable-stop 'cup'

Pros: inexpensive
works as designed
shiny

Cons: needs to be longer
needs adjustment barrel (instead of easily misplace-able housing stop ferrule

Would Buy Again: No
Would Recommend: No

Basic rear cable hanger. It works alright. Should be a little longer, and it would be nice if it came with an adjustment barrel.

cheap, no-nonsense hanger

I bought this to replace the hanger on my '04 Surly Cross Check when I switched back to cantis-- I'd lost the original. I tried a different model from a different manufacturer and found that it was too wide to fit between the seatpost clamp (the stock Surly "Constrictor"). This Tektro one, however, is identical to the stock Cross Check hanger, and worked like a charm.

It's easy to lose the cable stop "cup", though, so make sure you keep the two pieces together if you're going to be storing it away.

Pros: Compatible with Surly Cross Check, affordable

Cons: Easy to lose cable stop

Versatile component!

I got this for my CX bike to run cantilever brakes. While it is designed for use on the rear break to attach to the seatpost collar, its also has other uses, like the front brake. Since my bike had no steerer tube left to facilitate a front cable hanger, I modified the opening on this to work with my Thomson X4 stem. Within no time I was able to route the front brake cable under the stem and into these (which was hanging from the opposing lower face-plate bolt. It has been working without a single issue for nearly 3 seasons!

Also makes for a really lightweight solution over traditional hangers!

Pros: lightweight, cheap, versatile

Cons: Might be good in longer lengths
