Hi all,
Last time I serviced my bike I took apart my brake calipers and gave them a good going over. However, having put them back together I have realised I am missing the 2 little washers that sit either side of the bolt that clamps the 2 parts of the caliper together. This means that one side of the caliper wont fully return from whence it came once the brakes have been applied leading to some irritating brake rub!! Grrr!!
They are very thin M6 washers, one has an external diameter of 12.5mm and the other is 14mm.
Does anyone possibly have any lying around or know where I could pick some up as I am having real trouble finding any.

If this is for your Felt with Tiagra? I've just taken a set of Tiagra brakes off my Merckx, you're welcome to butcher them. I was going to give them to Paul but I'm sure he won't mind if you nick the washer you need.

Yeah, sorry I missed your call. My little 1 year old has managed to break my phone so now it's not got a ringtone so I have to rely on vibrate. I've sent you a text James and you can come over any evening you like. Just come and take the callipers with you and take what you need then if you lose anything else you've got spares.
