 Post subject: Longer caliper bolts?

Rich very kindly gifted me a pair of mirage calipers, trouble is my old bianchi doesn't have big enough holes to accept the deep nuts.

my old calipers have the bolts cast into them, so that's not the quick fix I'd hoped for!

I presume these are available?

Can you drill the frame instead?

I thought about that. However I figure if I could get a couple of longer bolts then it can always be switched back, once I make those holes there's no going back :lol:

I know that SJS cycles do longer studs for Shimano callipers - haven't the foggiest whether they will fit Campag though.
