Hi,

I've got myself a pair of carbon clinchers with a lowered brake track, for my budget build. Problem is, the rear Planet X CNC brake doesn't have enough arm length to let the pads reach the track. It appears to be common, and the answer is something like the following:

I have only been able to find this website selling these. I really need them in a bit of a hurry (Sportive on Sat 17th Sept and need some test miles in first), so does anyone know where in the UK, or at least Europe where I could get them? I'll contact the above website tomorrow if I can't get any a bit more local, but they may be reluctant to post.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks,

Willie

For the record, BDOP post worldwide for the stated shipping charge on their website ($3). I have gone on ahead and ordered via them.

How much extra reach can you get out of them?

Shipping is 2~4 days via FedEx.

Extra reach is 5~8mm depending on what you're comparing it to.

The new versions are based on the old design but produced by us (machining is outsourced) and we've updated the design to allow smoother adjustment.

NOTE: Sold as SINGLE SETS (enough for 1 wheel)
