    your favorite straddle wire carriers?

    Not really digging the ones that came with my new Pauls. What do you like?

    This kind by Jagwire. So much easier to adjust (you need a small hex wrench) than the typical kind. It is "self-centering" so you can't fix the straddle cable in place, if that's an issue for you. I use these without the plastic noodle that comes with it.

    I'm getting flashbacks of when I started mountain biking. The Ringle' Mojo, Avid Tri-Dangle, Onza Chill Pill, MRC G-Spot, and Pauls Moon Units were some of the classics.

    Onza is definitely a flashback! Paul wants $40 for the Moon Units. LOL. Maybe the Avid or the Jagwire

    Funny enough, one cross bike has Tri-Dangles on it. I have at least one pair of Chill Pills in my bin o' stuff.

    I'd LOVE to have some Brew jugs for the Full Tilt Boogie.

    I've always thought the Spooky brakes (and hangers) were PRO.

    I have some Brew jugs that I bought at Interbike in 2000. Also have 5 or 6 pairs of Chill Pills, a couple of Avid Tridangles, some Ringle peace signs, and assorted others stashed away. I love the old stuff.

    Von Giese makes the coolest ones I have seen. Plus they are ultra rare.

    Your Pauls deserve Moon Units.
