NEED: Cannondale M700 '94 thread brake studs

Trying to find four of these.. believe their 5/16" 18 threads per inch into the frame.. .305 dia at threads.

Email off list.

Or... anyone know of some MTB'ers that keep a large inventory of vintage parts around?

Posted this on Bike Mechanics... done the obvious sources for parts.

damn, are those canti studs really an oddball spec?

Have you tried problem solvers? or for shats and gaggles - try a plain jane canti stud?

Other potential source - try asking on retrobike. Lotsa ol skool bike knowledge there.

By my comment, I was meaning a typical brake stud that a shop dude would hand you if you asked for a replacement. Example being, http://www.jensonusa.com/Replacement-Cantilever-Stud

If the above, or the Problem Solvers or one from Paragon Machine don't work on your frame, then Cannondale did indeed spec an super oddball size and you can consider yourself lucky. You have one rare bird that could conceivably be worth a pretty penny on ebay.

btw - how did you come about your measurements?

So you're going off the word of the hardware store dude using an imperial/SAE bolt? common threading indeed...

A 5/16" bolt "may" work on a frame boss but that doesn't mean it'll be ideal. Bike hardware is usually metric, brake studs usually M10. Get the brake stud from Paragon Machine (older version), thread it into the frame boss and continue the bike build.
