Suntour #4

Suntour hanger from the early 1990’s. Manufactured from aluminium plate with a steel M5 bolt, steel open nut (not dome) and 2 x washer combination. Bulky appearance indicates this was mountain bike groupset specific, and certainly lower end compared to the sleek hangers specified on XC Pro (Suntour #2 above). It features a Suntour decal/sticker on the front. Available in Silver only.

Suntour have had numerous ‘firsts’ in their history, but one of the lesser (and lesser known) is that they were the first to place a sticker on a hanger! The reason why is unclear. They already had the Suntour logo metal stamps, so the easy option would have been to keep with tradition and stamp the logo. Producing and applying decals would hardly have been easier or more cost effective, so it was unlikely to have been an attempt to reduce costs. It may have been a simple attempt to market the brand… although not for the long term as decals in these locations suffer from the elements. The only other hangers  with decals applied were BREW Racing Jugs with their ‘XXX’  decals.

Suntour Power Hanger

Very neat device that enables you to run cantilever brakes without the need for dedicated front or rear cable stops and hence traditional cable hangers. Similar to the Cannondale Force-40 system and the Pace RC35 brake rocker.

Power Hangers are for front or rear use and attached by the threaded rod to either the hole in a fork crown or the hole in a chainstay bridge mount.

There are two models available. OT-PH00 and OT-PH10. The former has a CNC machined aluminium rocker unit, the latter has a rocker comprised of 3 pieces of plate steel which have been riveted together.

Weight: 56g (alu), 58g (ste)
