    Older Truth Brake Boss Issue!

    I have a 1998 Ellsworth Truth frame that im building up and will be using v-brakes. I found one random boss at a bike store that has been around for a while. Since finding the first one I have ordered a m10x1.25 and m10x1.5 threaded brake bosses trying to find a match. Neither are course enough. I dont know where to look anymore. Has anyone else had any experiences with this odd course threaded brake boss.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I took my bag of bosses to the hardware store today and they measured the threads. The boss it self is a m10x1.5 and the 1.5 pitch bosses I ordered from Jersey Cycles were not 1.5 in fact they did not match any size, basically they were garbage. I purchased a tap and tapped the holes to 1.25 and used the first set I bought. It worked out great with no issues.
