Hi guys, I have stripped my bolts a bit, I know, I need better tools=(
So, I just need the bolts, not the whole assembley, and if possible,
hex would be much better.

ps: read just now that some one used rear break bolt?

I have never tried using a normal hex bolt (M6) in place of campag's expensive bolt. It might work them again it might wobble.

For a number of years Campy used steel hex head female nuts for that application.

They went with torx head when the new 11 speed stuff came out as those nuts had changed to aluminum.

I managed to do this when taking levers off in a hurry, however it was easily rectified by using profiled brake bolts, which were steel.

Hi,

Works fine. They're available in alloy (not sure how well they take repetive installs/removals), Ti and steel.

Ciao, ;)
