    Ancient post!

    the brake calipers slide up the nut and are tightened in the correct position on the rim.

    you don't adjust the pad itself, you move the whole caliper up and down.

    OP could use an inline barrel adjuster to get round that problem. I have them on my commuter with mini-V brakes and Sram Rival levers, they work really well!

    Top information - thanks all. It's good to receive confirmation that my craziest ideas are, in fact, completely unworkable!

  6. TRP Hylex drop bar levers with Magura HS hydraulic rim brakes?

    Anyone managed to mate these two systems yet?
    There is a magura drop-bar lever for hydraulic brakes, the HS66 I think, but they are as rare as unicorn hoof clippings.

    That's vintage enough for me! Top little save there.
    I love to see the parts bin getting a workout. Heck, it's what the parts bin is for!
    I hope you continue to enjoy it.

    I carefully reset the rear dropout with the handle of a big old benchtop clamp. Worked beautifully! I have to confess I was more than a bit nervous as I applied some pressure but all was good. The...

    I use strips of old inner tubes as 'under wrap', works beautifully with a cheap cork tape on top.

    First problem.
    the drive side rear dropout has had a bang, it is now only 9.05mm wide at the end of the claw so I can't get a back wheel in.
    It looks like standard 126mm spacing.
    it looks like I...

    I should also add that I wonīt be aiming for a period correct build with this frame.

    I will probably disappoint you all with the build, itīll be a parts bin special rather than beautiful brushed aluminium Campy 11-speed, but itīll be functional.

    Thanks Mike. It certainly gets a lot of attention from the carbon crowd on group rides, I suppose bright neon paintwork will do that!
