Caliper Thread
#1
I've just taken my front and rear brakes off the frame of the bike so I can fit the adaptors for bigger discs. The front was fine. The back wasn't. The thread in the frame has completely gone, it appears to have come out on the bolt. The holes on the frame are now completely bare, you can pass the bolt or allen key straight through it!! Is this a common problem, can it be re-threaded?

If not is the frame fcuked?  Undecided

Ash you donut ! There isnt any thread in the frame, the bolt should pass through easily, The thread is in the adaptor, What looks to be the thread in the bolt is threadlocking solution Big Grin

Ive just tried to call you to let you know ... So dont worry about the calls !

The adaptor goes on the side of the disc mount nearest the wheel, You then place the bolt through the frame and it screws into the adaptor !
