      Imagine my 'delight' when I went to install the new tektro quartz sidepulls and discovered they're for frames/forks with recessed nut setups.
      Looked at the bridge and the forks and neither has the reinforcement to allow drilling them out without compromising the part.
      Does any mnfg. still make sidepulls for non recessed bolt frames or is this a 'go to eBay' deal.
      Thanks
