I'm building up an old Peugeot Super Competition 531 bike. I bought some shiny new caliper brakes for it only to discover that, what I think is called the pivot bolt (hollow and threaded), is too big for the corresponding hole in the frame/forks through which the brakeset attaches to said pivot bolt.
Will I have to get an old brakeset or is there a modern one with a narrow pivot bolt? If so, suggestions please. Alternatively, is there a source of pivot bolts which would fit this particular frame?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
