Hi All, is there such as thing as a drop bolt for Shimano dual pivot brakes.
Mate of mine has just got a giant Aluxx frame that he's likely to buy a complete groupset for. Trouble is the standard drop 49mm shimano brakes that are included wont reach the rim by a mm or 2.
I know you can get 57mm drops but that means buying extra callipers on the groupset option.

There used to be such a thing but finding one would be very hard to do. The simplest way is to file out downwards & this will not affect the integrity of the brake caliper arm.
