    Can the bolt from a bolt thru brakes be replaced from the bolt to recessed mount?

    I have a set of Campagnolo bolt thru Nuovo Record Long Reach brake. Can i replace the bolt for a recessed mount bolt?
    If I get a bolt like this one in the pic, can I swap them easily?

    And these are the brakes I want the bolts replaced to a recessed mount.

    Thanks in advance.

    No need to replace the brake bolt. Just use these:

    Nylon Brake Insert

    ^Neal, I think that's the solution for the reverse of the OPs problem. As you know, the nylon insert allows a nutted bolt to be used in place of the recessed bolt. However, sanzbajo wants to replace the nutted end with a recessed allen nut. It will likely be a problem, since the hole in the brake bridge will likely need to be enlarged to fit the recessed allen nut. Ditto the fork crown, though you can avoid having to drill out the back of the fork by mounting the nut inside the steerer behind a curved washed (I haven't done this myself). It is a fairly simple mod, though many would frown on modifying a classic frame for this purpose, and it may decrease the value if it's truly a collectible frame.

    Nlerner is correct, but to answer the OP's question. Yes, assuming you are replacing with a Campagnolo bolt.

    You can source the shorter bolts meant for the application quite easily, if you're willing. And yes, they're easy to switch out.
    Or, you can send me those brakes and I'll send you the shorter bolts.

    The old way, when recessed mounts were young and guys transferred brakes to their new frame, we put the rear to the front (minding the brake block direction) and threaded the front bolt down to become the new rear. Wears out dies fast though,

    Hmm, I'm seeing nutted Campy brakes in the pic that the OP wants to use on a frame with recessed mounts, I think. Clarification needed!

    That is the OPs problem. He wants to put those long reach CampI brakes on his Razesa but it takes recessed nuts.

    Exactly, like Bianchgirl said. I am from Spain and English is my second language. I have used the Nylon brake insert, but at the place I got them told me that what I should really do is get a recessed mount bolt to replace the one that it is in my brake caliper. I want to know if this pictured bolt would work, so I can make sure it works before I buy it. They are kind of expensive. Right now I am using the brake insert but it is not a perfect system. it works for now, but eventually I want to get a bolt and make it a perfect fit.
    Thanks for all the help.

    Is the bolt pictured the one I need? This is the description:"CAMPAGNOLO VINTAGE CHROME RECESSED REAR BRAKE BOLT (1) NR/SR CHROME/NOS" Is this what I need to buy.
    I apologize for my ignorance, but I am new to vintage bikes.
    Thanks for all the help.

    And this is the brake mounted on my bike with the Nylon brake insert. I want to replace the bolt for a cleaner look. Sorry for my finger.
