I received three replies to my offer to trade CPSC for non-CPSC Campi NR brake holders, and have accomplished the swap with member Ed Busch in TN, so his Bottechia will have pre-CPSC brakes and my Allegro will have nice black brake accents. :-)

Apparently there are a few more "mismatched brake caliper set" owners out in CR land, so I encourage others to offer a trade here on the list if they want to have a more uniform-looking braking system. USPS cost is between $1.50 - $6 (First Class to Priority mail for a few ounces if you keep your own nuts and washers and just swap the brake holders).
