I just picked up an '09 Transition on craigslist, and was expectantly dismayed to find that the stock brakes aren't quite wide enough for my Zipp 404 firecrests. When I remove the straddle cable (unsure if that's correct term for this particular type of brakes), they open up enough for the super wide 404s.
Does anybody either a) know the part number for the straddle "cable" that came stock, so I can order a slightly longer one or b) have any suggestions for how I can open the brakes up another 4mm?
