OK, then I need to turn them around. Actually, that makes more sense than the Campy design, in that it's much easier to adjust them when the screw heads are to the rear. Of course, with the Campy design, if the heads were to the rear, you would need some sort of removable cap at the front end to retain the spring. The current Campy caps might work for this, but if they were in contact with the wheel, it would be better for them to have flat tops rather than domed ones.
