    Hello there!
    First of all, thank you so much for making these nice videos!
    I learned so much watching your videos!
    I want your thought on the problem I am currently facing with rear brake caliper! I have an old Benotto frame on which I want to install Campagnolo Veloce brakes. Looking at your video I realized that your rear fork crown is different than main, because I see that your crown is “empty”, I mean, you drilled one side of it and that is it, you can mount your brake. However, the hole in my fork crown is “full”. Is there any solution? And I dont have two front brake calipers. So I have to use my rear one.
    I am looking forward to hearing your answer!
    Greetings, Archie
