I had a Giant 780X (is that right?) back in '88. That's when mtb seat
tubes were around the same size as a road bike's. High, ball-smashing
top tubes. That thing tried to kill me 100 times, but I was cutting my
teeth then.

Wow....
Freekin' brilliant! I've never seen that before. There's no reason to
go back to the cable. You should mass market that stick! Have Bontrager
design one in carbon fiber....

I have about an inch of standover on the Giant. You gotta be careful
riding a bike like that...
