    HELP! I need help with a Fuji part....

    I got this set of drop handlebars from a LBS. He had a bunch of parts he stripped off a cracked frame. Anyhow, I'm trying to remove the brake levers, and from what I can tell, they are not mounted in the same way that Shimano drop levers are mounted. When I look inside... the place where the hex pattern is is simply rounded.

    How can I take these things off??? Any Fuji gurus out there??? TIA

    you mean a hex bolt is stripped?? use an easy out type extractor in the head of the bolt where the hex wrench goes...

    is this what you mean?

    No... I wish it was that simple.

    These Fuji levers are strange, there really is no room to insert the hex anyway, but no... there is no hex bolt (or reminants thereof). If I peel back the rubber hoods, there is some sort of slot on top of the lever, but I can't seem to figure it out.... I'm sure it's something very simple, but you need to have done it once to understand it.... that sort of thing. Anyhow... any ideas???

    I think Matto has it. The Dia Compes on my older Fuji work just as Matto describes.
