    I have a set of Shimano 600 single-pivot sidepull calipers, which I like because they have a wide
    arch with lots of clearance for fenders. Unfortunately, one of the calipers is missing the original
    hardware for anchoring the brake cable, and none of the bike shops around here (Westchester County,
    New York) have a replacement brake cable anchor bolt.

    Does anyone know where I could find a replacement anchor bolt, or at least a slotted washer? The
    calipers take an odd-size bolt: the hole is 6mm in diameter, and the bolt would need to be about
    20mm long. All of the anchor bolts I have seen for sale on-line (biketoolsetc.com, the Third Hand)
    are too short and too skinny. By the way, the back of the caliper arms are stamped "57".

    Thanks. --glenn

    Have you tried Heinz? <J/K>.

    You might check The Third Hand/Loose Screws:. http://www.thethirdhand.com/ they usually have some
    odds and ends. I think a couple of the guys here supply them too.

    May you have the wind at your back. And a really low gear for the hills! Chris
