I am having problems mounting a pair of campa cantis on my frame. There are no holes on the mounts for the springs on the brakes. I guess I need a spacer/shim of some sort with a hole in it. Anyone know where I can get this? I found a picture of something like I mean, notice the hole for the spring on the black metal shim. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can try a well stocked bicycle shop or the rte used to be an online shop small parts that had almost everything imaginable. I use Avid Ultimate Shorty brakes that get their spring tension just by tightening the mounting bolt and using a cone wrench to set tension before you tighten the bolt. It's a very nice system and once set stays put.

Are you saying that the canti mounts on the fork are missing the plate with the 3 holes in it as depicted in your photo? That's odd as if they are canti mounts, and not U-brake or Paul's mounts, they would always have that plate (or equivalent). Anyway you can get brake boss components from Paragon (Ti, Stainless or Std Steel)

Hope it helps
