I bought some new calipers some time back for my bike, but have just gotten round to fitting them. Unfortunatly they must be a slightly different size to the old ones (I did measure, but don't have calipers unfortunatly) and the brakes blocks won't go down far enough to be clear of the tyre. The difference is minimal, 1 or 2mm would be fine.
I have been looking at break pad extenders such as those in the link below, but can only find distibuters from the Far East. Given the time and/or cost involved in sending over does anyone know of a UK or European source of something similar? I have been Google-ing all night but no luck!
Alternatlily any other thoughts would be great, however I'm not much of a mechanic. The brakes in question are Tiagra rim brakes going on to a 2015 Giant Defy Alu - issue on the rear only.
