Thanks for all the input especially Scott M. I managed to find a very nice older Tange Levin in my stash... I replaced the first gen Dura Ace HS and got enough space to fit a cable hanger and get plenty of engagement with the top nut. I am building a 650B conversion for my wife..... the cat is outta the bag so I need to wrap it up presto!!
