Cartridge Pad Holders for Older Road Bike Caliper Brakes?
The current road brake cartridge pad holders from Tektro, Shimano and Kool Stop all seem to want wider mounting slots than older brakes have. Current Shimano pad mounting slots are 6.5mm wide while older 8 speed and earlier Shimano and Campy brakes have 6mm wide pad mounting slots by my measurement.
Does anyone make a cartridge pad holder that fits the older 6mm slots without widening the slots?
