Long front brake bolt

I putting together my new bike and I discovered the front brake nut is too short to fit through my carbon fiber fork. I have Campy Record brakes. I looked in the specs and found out that Campy makes a longer nut. The part number is BR-RE427. Can anyone tell me where I can get one? For now I bought a longer one but it's a cheap steel one. I would like to get an original Campy titanium one.

I had the same problem when I replaced my fork with a new, wider one. My LBS had a longer nut in stock.

Check your LBS as they are likely to have these in stock. Many carbon forks have thicker crowns than steel forks and require a longer brake mounting nut. Dealers are used to the problem when the do upgrades.

My Kestrel EMS Pro fork came with the longer nut and explicit instructions that it had to be used.

I ask my LBS about getting a Campy nut. They called the Campy rep and he never had anyone ask for that part before. I guess they use the steel problem solvers to put their bike together.
