I almost have my bike build complete, minus running the brake and shift cables. I just installed my brakes but I had to borrow a front pivot nut from my 105 brake because TRP only supplies a couple sizes which are way too short for my Pro Carbon Fork. The flange of the pivot nut sits flush(not recessed). Is there any lightweight options out there. Just curious.

Plenty out there.

I got rid of my 970SL brakes pronto. The small alloy screws on the underside started to corrode badly. If I was fitting them again I would melt some candlewax over them for protection or dribble some glue.

I think I got some from Toronto cycles last time I needed them.

When I did a google search, that's the only one that came up.
