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

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.

Hi - Will This Fit A Dura Ace 9000 Brake Caliper?
By

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.

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?
SJS Customer Service:
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?
SJS Customer Service:
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?
SJS Customer Service:
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

SJS Customer Service:
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
SJS Customer Service:
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?
SJS Customer Service:
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!

SJS Customer Service:
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 ?
SJS Customer Service:
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.
