I have been putting back together an older GT Mountain bike...
I have some newbie questions:
1) I was wondering if the bracket/spindle is suppose to have any play in it? I put the crank arms back on and the bracket moves up and down just a little bit. Is this normal? I didn't do anything to the bracket so I don't see why it would be loose. Does it need to be tightened or something?
2) I am having brake issues. All my bolts(and plastic spacer pieces[between spring and bold]) that bolt the brake to the frame/fork are missing. Can I get these at a bike store? If not, can I just use a bolt from the Hardware store?
3) Lastly (and I am not there yet) Is there anythign I need to know about hooking up the brake cables and derailluer cables? I am planning on getting new ones.
Thanks for the help
