- Fork crown mounted canti hanger
Now there’s a mouthful!Posted 5 years ago
Suffering from massive brake judder on the front of my Tri-Cross and been told that specialized do a crown mounted brake hanger to eliminate this, can i find one? Can i flip…
Does anyone know where i can get one of these mythical beasts or if there is something else that will do the same job?
Yes, the canti hanger on the Tricross is a specific part designed for that particular fork. The reason it’s like that is the L bend section hooks under the crown to prevent the hanger rotating when the brakes are applied. Pain in the arse for fitting mudguards.
A Specialized dealer might be able to grab a part number and get it ordered for you.
Alternatively you might be able to use a generic one, but check that the crown will accept it – I seem to recall it being a little odd in some way but can’t remember how.
Edit – Short-arm V brakes would be another way round.Posted 5 years agoctznsmithSubscriber
I have used the generic one but front of tricross forks is flat, and the generic is designed for curved crown. I had to use a longer bolt I think with a ‘top hat’ allen key head (like you get on caliper brakes). Also when I stripped the bike recently a big bit of paint fell off the forks where the curve had pressed into it, going to file it flat before I refit.
