Lightest solution for a canti cable hanger?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

A drilled stem is indeed the lightest solution. That said, the Tektro/TRP fork mounted cable hanger is also pretty light and does a great job at reducing brake shudder.

It is actually a rear cable hanger designed for being used with the seat binder bolt, it i made by Tektro:

I have been using this setup for 3 or 4 years now, it is still going strong and working well. I had to modify the top loop of the hanger a bit so that it didn't interfere with bar on Thomson stem. It tends to pull a bit to one side because its hard to center, so I had to slightly compensate by increasing the spring tension on my Neo-Retro's to keep the pads centred on rims, easy fix though!

Has a pretty clean/minimal look in the end. I ended up going this route due to lack of steer tube to run a normal hanger. My options were, drill out stem (wasn't quite prepared to do that), or run one of those heavy and kind of ugly crown mounted ones. This was only $2-$3 to try out, so I went this route and it worked.
