Hi guy's, can anybody tell me whereabouts i may get rear drop out screws to fit in campagnolo rear drop outs. I purchased a bike off here a few week's ago and (amongst many other issue's), these are missing. They are very thin fine threaded screw's and i presume they are for rear wheel alignment. Also, are they supposed to have a thin spring on them as well?? Cant find anything on ebay, but maybe im not calling them by their correct name. Any help or advice or screw's for that matter is greatly appreciated. Cheer's Dave. 8)

They're still readily available, I've seen plenty on e-bay. Try Dave Marsh at Universal Cycle Centre, he'll have some.

And yes, they should have springs with them. I think they're a 3mm thread.

EDIT - just seen these on the first e-bay page I came to -

And these -

That should be how they work. The earlier ones had a knurled chrome nut rather than a wingnut and the other end has a screwdriver slot. The spring fits inside the dropout.
