    Default Centerpull brake mounts, where to buy?

    My google-fu is weak....Anyone know where to get brake studs for the likes of Dia-compe centerpull brakes and their kin?

    Thanks!

    I am pretty ignorant of centerpulls. Wadda you do about the single vertical hole for the spring that is needed? I was trying to take the easy way out :(

    Remove two of the three spring holes and use the remaining one. Or remove them all and braze on a small piece of tubing to capture the spring. Either way is way better than the two piece ones that you can buy. The two piece ones are sort of cheesy.

    Another option is to turn down U brake bosses on a lathe (they are a little to big) and braze on a small piece of tubing as Curt suggested.

    Thanks guys! That is what I will do, just braze up a set. I will write to Mark at Paragon. Maybe he could make something nice for us?
