Anyone still have one of Sheldon's Drop Bolts?

Desperately needing just one for my Giant OCR (dang long reach junk). Anyone still have one laying around? Top dollar paid! Thanks!

Didn't Sheldon make one out of hardware store junk? I made one once from a short strap I cut in two and a nylon insert bought at Home Depot for about $3.

Just buy the Tektro long reaches. A set can't cost more than $50. Especially given that the drop bolt costs more than a new brakeset...

That's what I have now, & can't stand them. Regardless, I'm in the process of creating my own as we speak. Can anyone verify Shimmy caliper bolts are 6mm x 1.0 pitch?

All the manufacturers use the same thread and pitch, or at least I haven't run across anyone who doesn't, so if it's 6*1 on your Tektro, it's 6*1 for all
