Hey all,


So I have a vague memory of some brake pad holders where the bolt and pad were offset so you could use short reach brakes on bikes that require mid or long reach brakes. However, I can't for the life of me remember who makes them. Do any of you know where I can find them?
I'm so rubbish at this.

BDop makes them. Not very light, and I reckon some material could be shaved DIY. But the CNC machining and overall quality is really very, very nice. I used them with KCNC titanium hardware, cut alot of weight.

FYI...I contacted BDop last week and they don't stock them anymore, nor will they in the near future. Cheers, Pete

Anyone other leads on offset or dropped pad holders for Shimano brakes? I'm looking too.
