This is my first attempt at making a 22.2mm rinko specific front cable hanger. The bar/stem/cables come apart as one and are fastened to the compacted bike. The hanger also doubles as a quill stem height marker. When making it, I searched around for some component that could be repurposed for this. I came across this old steel Dura Ace headset lock nut in my headset parts drawer and thought itd be perfect as the derailleurs are Dura Ace (apologies to anyone who is fuming right now). I turned it down, shaped it on the lathe, and brazed it onto a small section of threaded steerer and an existing steel hanger (that I reshaped and added an M5 adjusting barrel to). I added a small M5 binder, slotted it, and now I just need to get it over to the chrome plater. #rinkobike #duraace #cablehanger #chrome #quillstem #chapmancycles
