Ben, You can thread the rear axle down w/ a 6 mm x die and chop it to length. I used to do this to Campy Nuovo record ones. OH THE SACRILEGE! Mine is a Sears Craftsman and works just fine. Take the brake apart, use lots of oil, go back and fourth, and chamfer the end a bit after cutting.


John Pergolizzi Torino, Italy where the pimpled Victoria tire of yesterday became the "John, their was a really loud explosion this afternoon in the bike room". Me: Ugh, bike room go boom?
