Will Pace V brake clamps work on On-one carbon forks?

I'm sure we looked into this once before mate and the diameters are "dont be stupid" different enough.

I'm sure you know someone who could knock something up...

The OD of the on-one legs is 34mm. I'll nip out and measure my pace shortly.

Bodgetastic! :D

If you can adequately shim the Pace V-brake adapters to spread the load then it should be possible.
I take it On-One don't do v-brake adapters for these forks?
Thought about selling the On-One forks and picking up some Rc31's with the V-brake mounts?

How can you shim something that's a smaller diameter than what you need?

Either you under tighten the mount and hope that the tighter curves and unmet ends don't damage the legs or you put a band around the ouside of the mounts whilst still checking for tight curves and pressure from edges.
