My Severn Valley frame has Cyclo rear drop-outs. All well and good as that is a nice Birmingham maker and all that. I am about to start building it up and have got to the "discovering all the irritating little bits you don't have stage."

On the list is a pair of those long screws that thread through the rear drop-outs and set the rear axle position. I know that the 3mm Campag ones are available, but is the Cyclo likely to be the same thread?

I told you it was esoteric!

As far as I'm aware they are all a standard M3 thread. You can buy a set off Ebay:

I guess if they didn't fit, you could send them back.

Very helpful, thanks, and your link looks exactly what I need.

I was worried that in those funny old days they were using out-of-date measurements like pints, feet, miles.... Hang on a minute!

Cheers.

I have a pair of those adjusters! Brand new! £5 including postage, cheaper than ebay.
