Moving 105 rear brake to front - Front brake bolt question.
I recently got a couple spare 105 brakes on the cheap at my local bikeswap, and I'm hoping to use them as a front brake on a SS/FG training project (to use in tandem with my road bikes).
The brakes I bought were rear, and had the shorter bolt for going through the brake bridge, but won't extend all the way for mounting through my fork.
I found this
inexpensive front brake bolt assembly, but don't know if it will fit my 105 brake. For the price, I may just buy it and give it a shot...but does anyone know of an easy way or inexpensive replacement bolt to help me move a 105 rear brake to the front?
