Caliper fitting

Postby Markwb79 » Sat Dec 15, 2012 20:35 pm

Hi,

I am trying to fit my rear calliper, but it seems that the bolt is too long when it goes through the frame?

It is a Chorus caliper going into the TCR frame.

I am moving the brake from my old frame to my new one, but this is the last thing to fix! I remember the caliper coming with two fitting lengths, I am already on the shorter one of the two.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks
Mark

You haven't got the front and rear mixed up? Rears usually have a stubby mounting stud - about 12mm
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Do you mean the brakes? Pretty sure I havent. Fits on my addict frame, fitted on my Colnago. But now I am moving it to my new frame that I have the problem.

Brake nuts are frame/fork specific. They come in various lengths from around 10mm to 30mm+. LBS should be able to supply correct length nut. Or find length what is supplied with frame and order online. Cost from about 50p to £3.
