I have 2 pairs of brake calipers, both of which have internal Allen key fittings to fit them to the bike, but the bike is a nut fitting. I don't want to drill the frame and forks so can I get new pivot bolts or should I just sell them and buy some more brakes with the right fittings
Cheers John

One of your current front calipers should fit the rear of your frame by replacing the recessed Allen nut with a normal nyloc nut. Then you just need to replace the pivot bolt in one of the rear calipers with a front nutted pivot bolt. They don't pop on eBay that often, so I've got them before from

They are described as "Brake centre spindle front nut fitting #2012" under the "Stock List" link and are £23.00.

Also bear in mind that a front nutted pivot bolt from loads of other cheaper brakes will also do the job in your Campagnolo calipers and is virtually impossible to spot once fitted.
