adding V-brakes to frame...
hi all. I've got an old GT frame that I'm wanting to add V-brakes to. As you can see from the pic the threads that hold the v-brakes is hollow (unlike my last frame which stuck out like on front forks)...do I need some sort of mount to let me do this or would a longer screw work?
any thoughts? thanks
I think you need some threaded studs in there. The bike shop should have some for a few $ ea.
You need a new bike
You need the bosses that thread into the frame and provide the mountings for the brakes. Ask your LBS for a couple.
thanks, will go looking for some...
Take your frame with you when you go shopping for studs. There's more than one size.
