use a section of chain for the straddle cable, its nice and stiff, helps the brakes work better. unless of course your a weight whore, then use a spoke or something. im not really that concerned with weight, so i like to use the chain, after all a couple of ounces isnt gonna make that much of a difference

i was going to try that but i just domt want to get involved with it since my straddle cable does great doesnt have any stretch in it at all.

the straddle cable well not cable chain. i made 2 brake mods to my brakes and that is new springs, caps, pads, and i cut the arm down so i would have chain clearance

yeah i was going to do that, but it was going to add extra weight..... :lol: hahaha im just joking i heard someone say that, but i just dont have links around to do that because i thrown them away since they were crap. but my straddle cable does great dont have to pull much to lock up the wheel and it doesnt ever feel like i can keep pulling it, in case would be stretching. i bought a special cable to use as my straddle cable, it cost me like $10 just for the cable no housing
