    Seems that it might be a proprietary part. If anyone has a bashed up old 10-spd Veloce derailleur they can sell that I can salvage the screw off it would be appreciated!

    @mustardbeak Well it would be really helpful if not too much of a PITA for you! I guess I will probably also need the thread pitch, but it's probably standard metric, right?

    Mine is ~2013 Veloce 10 Speed

    @Tenners In Bristol at the mo, but in London next weekend, so thanks for the tip.

    @mustardbeak I think those are the limit screws, so they are slightly different. I took one out to see if it fit and it was too short. I actually called GB a few days ago - but it's not a part they stock.

    I'm missing the B-Screw in my Veloce Derailleur, does anybody have an idea about the thread pitch / bolt dimensions so that I could source a replacement? Thanks in advance!

    I don't understand why Froome wouldn't want to ride. Is it just some PR game?

    Anyone have any tips for reasonable accommodation? (fear it may already be a bit late in the day!)

    Thanks for the feedback. Seems like froglegs are an option.

    I got e-mails back from Velo-Orange and Paul Components saying that their models did not fit with the narrow width.

    I'd be interested in hearing about any of these:Dia Compe GC-999, Dia Compe CRX or TPR EuroX These seem to be traditional designs based on the post-mount rather than threaded v-brake style blocks. Which maybe have more room for maneuverability.

    I thought I'd bump this thread as I have the same problem, but have not been able to find much conclusive information...

    I have an 80s Gitane Cyclocross with fork bosses spaced at 55mm, I believe the modern standard is around 70mm, so quite a difference. Ideally I'd like to use a modern brake, and have tried the Tektro CR720s with narrow pads and spacers removed, but still can't get the pad square with the rim.

    It seems the old-style brakes don't have the v-brake style adjusters used on modern pads:

    I've read a few threads on the Internet where people have the same problem, but none where anyone has come back with a modern model with geometry that also works for the old narrow spacing.

    Maybe the Paul "Neo Retro" would work (I have emailed them to ask)? Ideally I'd like something cheaper.

    Can anyone recommend a model they know to have worked? I'd like to use a wide-profile style if possible...
