Wanted: Shimano front brake bolt (sorted)

Or any Shimano twin-pivot front caliper brake that can be cannibalized for the bolt. Someone must have one in their spares box?


  • This time of year many bike shops will have rear brakes ruined by copmmuters riding in muck with no 'guards - bolt will be fine.
  • Ah Nick perhaps I did not make this clear — I need to swap a front brake bolt in to the rear brake. Standard rear pivot bolt is too short for external nut fitment.
  • Amazingly, you can buy a longer, nut-fit brake bolt from SJS or Spa Cycles as a detached spare, made by third-party suppliers, for less than a tenner. The full bolt assembly from Shimano is £80!
