When I decided to put the original centerpulls back on one of my bikes, I couldn't find the original cablestop/hangers that I put somewhere about 15 years ago. Couldn't find any hangers at any bike shops anywhere. Was considering buying a $50 beater bike on eBay just to pull the cable hangers off. But I e-mailed Martin Coopland at Classic Bikes and he supplied me with NOS cable hangers as well as NOS cable clamps that secure the cable to the straddle wires. If it can't be found anywhere, Martin will have it.
