Details
This cunning long bolt enables you to convert your Shimano or Tektro allen key dual pivot brakes to nut fitting for older traditional frames. The new front brake becomes the rear, the rear bolt is swapped out for this extra long one to become the front. Note; you'll need to reverse the brake blocks so the open ends face to the rear. You'll also need M6 nuts and relevant cup washers but these may well be available from your existing brakes. Works with Shimano RX-100, R-450/1, BR-3400, BR-5500, BR-5600, BR-6600 etc plus Tektro R-536 etc. We suggest you use Thread lock such as SJSC part # 19955

PLEASE NOTE: Does not fit with the newest Shimano brake callipers found with their 11spd groupsets. These Include Dura Ace BR-9000, Ultegra BR-6800 and 105 BR-5800.

ProsGood strong alloy, well finished, seems universal
Seems pricey for just a bolt, however this enabled the installation of some dual pivot Campy brakes on my vintage Raleigh Eclipse - probably the best upgrade I've done. Though for the price, I would appreciate if this came complete with a nut, a spring washer and a set screw (it's best to replace these together with the bolt, or any other time the brakes are overhauled).

ProsAppears to be fairly universal ?
Bought this on the off chance it would fit the Miche Performance calliper. All assembled OK and appears to work fine but have not fitted to bike yet.
Works!

ConsFlat bolt head may not match your existing calipers
ProsQuality, neat solution to a common problem
Used on a shimano 600 arabesque caliper. Simple to disassemble and reassemble and pre treated with thread lock. Brilliant!

Only minor quibble is the front bolt head on my brakes and many other vintage brakes is conical whereas on this it's flat. It minor and given that the point of these is to put newer brakes on older frames this won't be an issue for most situations. Just unlucky with my particular combination!

Great product and usual good service

ProsThe new brakes look great. No drilling of the brake arches required.
This product worked exactly as promised with Shimano Tiagra dual pivot brakes. The set screw under the brake arch had to be undone first using a small allen key. Releasing the spring allowed the original brake bolt to be easily swapped out. Once the brake spring was back in place, fitting the brake was straightforward.
Good Product

ProsUnique solution to modernise brakes on a classic frame
Care is needed in disassembling and reassembling the brakes, but I was successful with a Tektro front in about 30 mins. Trick is to use some long handled pliers to refit the spring. Bolt length was exactly right for my classic Holdsworth.

Thread dimensions?
By

I cant find a specification for this bolt, but are the dimensions around

Upper thread (closest to head)- M7
Lower thread - M6
Head diameter - about 11,5mm

Thank you!
Hi,

You are correct on all accounts, the two threads are M7 and M6 and the head is 11.5mm in diameter.

Thanks.
It Will Work With Converting My Rear 7900 Calliper To A Front One?
By
23 Feb 2017
I want to use my rear one as a front calliper, a longer washer won t work because my thick carbon fork layer covers the whole fixing screw/bolt so my last chance would be to replace my short bolt with a longer one, would this product help me?
Hi,

Unfortunately this bolt will not work for your needs. It is not compatible with Carbon forks as these use a recessed nut for fitting where as this bolt is designed for old steel forks that took an externally fitting nut. You can however purchase a front pivot bolt assembly replacement for your brake allowing you to use these for the front. Depending on the length of recessed nut you require our part numbers for the items are 29926, 29927 and 29928.

Thanks.
Would This Work On A New Campagnolo Veloce Calliper?
By
31 Dec 2016
Hi,

Unfortunately we do not stock any Campagnolo brakes so have no way of testing these bolts with a set of Veloce calipers so can't say for sure if it will work or not I'm afraid.

Thanks.
Hi - Will This Fit A Dura Ace 9000 Brake Caliper?
By
09 Aug 2016
I'm trying to fit current model Dura Ace 9000 onto a 1978 Raleigh frame without resorting to drilling the crown and brake bridege to accept allen key mounted brakes
Thanks,
Mike
Hi, yes there is no reason as to why this wont work & will convert your brakes to a nut fitting type that you require.

Regards
Would This Fit The Shimano 7900 Dura Ace Calipers
By
06 Jun 2016
Do the dura ace 7900 brakes use a different bolt or would this fit?
Hi,

The bolt style on the BR-7900 Dura Ace brakes is the same so you should be fine to use this with your brakes.

Thanks.
Will It Fit Shimano Tiagra Br-4600?
By
28 May 2016
I have refurbished an old road bike and bought new Shimano Tiagra BR-4600. Unfortunately the locking nut has a to large diameter to go into the fork. The bolt provided with the brakes are not long enough to go through the fork. Therefore, I need a bolt like this, if it will fit Shimano Tiagra BR-4600?
Hi,

This bolt should be fine for use with the Tiagra BR-4600 brakes.

Thanks.
Compatible With Miche Performance 57Mm Drop Brakes?
By
11 Mar 2015
I've taken apart the Miche caliper and the original short bolt does appear to be of a very similar design (but shorter), however was wondering if you could confirm this?
Hi,

As we've never sold Miche brakes I can't know for sure I'm afraid. The best way to check is to measure your current bolt, this one is 70mm in length.

Thanks.
Would This Bolt Work On Front Brake New 105 5800 Callipe
By
13 Feb 2015
Hi,

Although we have not tried it with this particular brake there should be no reason as to why this Conversion bolt would not work with your brakes.

Thanks.
Will This Work With The Shimano Tiagra B R451?
By
14 Jan 2015
Hi,

Yes this should work fine with any of Shimano's Calliper brakes that use a single pivot bolt fitting.

Thanks.
Will This Work With Sram Apex Brakes?
By
18 Aug 2014
If not, is there a Sram equivalent?
Hi,

Unfortunately I don't know if this bolt would work with a set of Sram brakes as we don't have any Sram brakes to test it with. This is the only version we have I'm afraid.

Thanks.
Will It Fit?
By
27 Feb 2014
Are the models listed the only ones this bolt would fit or would it work with some other new Tektro dual pivot calipers for old bike brake conversion?

Many thanks!
M.
Hi

There shouldn't be any issues with using this with the newer Tektro calipers or newer Shimano versions, the list that we have online is out of date & needs to be revised.

Tektro Shimano Pattern 70 Mm Dual Pivot Brake Bolt Crmo
By
11 Jan 2014
I need a bolt longer than the 45mm bolt supplied to attach SKS mudguards to a cross bike with cantilever brakes. Will this product do the trick ? Do you have a bolt that is between 45mm and 70mm ?
Hi,

In theory you could use this bolt for this although it is really not the purpose it was originally designed for. We don't have any that are directly designed to replace the bolts on caliper brakes.

Thanks.
