    I'm looking for a front cable hanger for a touring bike that I am building
    up. I've seen the alloy hangers that are sort of thick, but what I am
    really looking for is an old style hanger - keyed for a 1" threaded
    steerer - with a deep drop from where the hanger goes around the steerer to
    where the cable is held. (I'm using ergo shifters so I am trying to get a
    nice curve to the brake cable housing.) Something like this, but with a
    deeper drop, and preferably with a barrel adjuster -
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7105580397.

    If you have one that you would like to sell, or if you have any leads, I'd
    really appreciate it. My address is al(dot)russo(at)prodigy.net. Thanks so
    much!!

    I think I have one in my parts box with a barrel adjuster on it, though
    it probably won't be any longer than the one you showed. I'll dig
    around and see what I can come up with...
