Does anyone know of a lightweight cable hanger other than the one's the guy here was making, and can anyone identify the hanger in this pic?

I swear that looks like a bmx gyro hanger with one tab cut off. I got that pic from a German site or I would just ask him but I dont speak the language.

Hard to see from the picture exactly what you are talking about but a nice lightweight solution is to take a rear brake cable hanger and attach it to a handlebar clamp bolt. Scroll to the bottom of this link-

You might have to file the hanger a bit to make it fit to the clamp. This is certainly lighter than any other headset style hanger. I have my bike set up this way and people always ask about it.
so thats your chili con crosso? if so. sweet bike! interesting idea, but i would like find a "traditional" cable only lighter and cant believe there arent several options out there. the first to design a nice one i bet could make a little money seeing as how there are none.

in the pic above, notice his cable hanger looks like a cnc plate or something, that's why im asking because i dont know what it is? maybe no one else thinks about a lightweight cable hanger, but it looks like thats about the one part that you will see the same on a $200 bike and a $5000 bike. there needs to be an upgrade!
