I have a set of Dia Compe Gran Compe centerpull brakes, from the early 1980's. I believe they are the model 500. The pads that they use have a smooth post, similar to cantilever pads. I picked up a set of Kool Stop pads, with the smooth post, but the post diameter is too large.
Does anyone know where I can get replacement pads for this brake?
They have new (or NOS) Dia Compe pads, nice and soft; I put a set on my beater last month.
Thanks for the link. I have (happily) dealt with LooseScrews and Harris Cyclery in the past, but is always good to know of another source for rare parts.
