Shimano brake pad pins

Postby DanDax1990 » Sun May 26, 2013 19:25 pm

Looking for some pad pins which screw in to replace my split pins. Pain in the ars* when I can never find my pliers lol

Any ideas as to where I can find some? Cheers.

Wouldn't it be easier just to remember where your pliers were?

Surely looking for a hex key is just as "taxing"...

Believe it or not, I have about 10 sets of allen keys. My mother non stop moves my pliers, God knows why.

Any helpful replies?

I seen those but ideally wanted black or ano red. They look too yellow for my liking.

Not threaded but 5 mins will sort that out.

Somewhere like CRC, or buy a toolbox.
