brake mounting bolts for a road bike
Just trying to clear something up here. Wouldn't the mounting bolt for a front brake be longer than the bolt for the rear brake?
Wouldn't it be longer because it has to pass through the fork?
I'm pretty sure that I now the answer but I'm trying to straighten something out with an e-bay seller.
I bid on a Tiagra brake caliper and in the ad it was stated that it would be good for a fixie, so I bid on it since i need only one brake right now. I didn't notice that there was no mention of whether it was a front or rear brake. Yes it was stupid to bid before i knew that info. The seller says that the bolts on the front and rear are the same length which I don't think is true.
anyway, i will honor my bid if i win whether it is really a rear brake, at least it was only $10.
If I am wrong please let me know.
Thanks in advance
