    Most LBS will have longer sleeve nuts in stock, if yours doesn't the major interweb retailers do.

    http://www.ultimatepursuits.co.uk/cycling/index.aspx are usually pretty good for bits like this. I've had to buy some longer nuts to hold my calipers in place and got them from here.

    cheers for the advice my lbs Kontour cycles of Polegate, East Sussex supplied extended nuts with ease.
    unfortunatley carbon frame not delivered by Dolan with them, otherwise frame Aurora is A1 very light and looks great
