Just a suggestion, but how about getting Bob to fit a new recessed brake bridge :wink:


Just been quoted £35 for a new brake bridge. Looking for calipers now. Tentatively. Maybe a bridge is best

A suggestion would be to simply change the bolts on the calipers from allen key to nut or vice-versa.

Maybe, if

A, they're compatible with both types of caliper, and

B, they're available

£35 for a new brake bridge looks like a winner if you are going allen key............ I thought it would be more but only the cost of 2 steaks at Beefeater LOL

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Hoping to find out the age of the frame, Shaun. If it's older that I thought ( late '80s at a guess), I may bite the bullet and go for an older g/set. GULP! Also the paint scheme I had in mind may change too. :roll:

That's not old Mike :)

I must have seen it on here mate, knew I had seen it recently.
It's a really great looking frame and you have us all wondering about this paint job.
C'mon give us a hint :)
