Tough one here guys, :?
Does anyone have or know where I can get hold of a pair of U-brake screw in bosses/mounts, I imagine like what you would have off the back of a Zaskar and would have like a hex nut Base like this one :arrow:

if you have any kicking around in those spare parts bins or off an old knackered cracked zaskar you've seen in the back of a shop guys, chuck em my way
Please

Yeah I've seen some similar BMX specific versions , they on to the brake bridge but I am after just the bolt in studs, the holes are there but no brake studs :( , I think that a u-brake stud is also shorter than a canti stud otherwise I would use canti studs.

Yes , on the Haro frame I had , it would have been impossible to use cantis brakes on the back as it was designed for a U brake . the bosses were just too wide to fit in the cantis arms .
