I am building a Soma double cross and have a question. The Canti bosses on the frame are longer than the brakes (TRP Eurox) are thick, when I tighten the screw the brakes have play in and out. Should I grind the bosses shorter or put a washer (larger ID) under the screw. The difference in thickness is about 1 mm. The bosses on the fork, Stella Azzura work fine. The in-out play may be correct, but it seems odd.

Thanks,


Jeff

You could put a washer in front of or behind the brake to accomplish what you desire. I am not sure if putting either palce makes a difference.
I have the same frame as you, but some budget tektro brakes and those seemed to work fine. I find it interesting that the TRP are that much narrower.
