Marzocchi MZ fork v-brake items/set up
Building bike for girlfriend. Fork is lower end Marzocchi MZ Comp or Supercomp either '05, '06, or '07 - I can't really remember and the box is pretty vague. Can anyone confirm that these 2 items (or 4, depending on how you look at it) are what I need to set up v-brakes since they gave us a 2008 owner's manual with no real answer and very small, fuzzy, and gray pictures:
*(2nd item would be "1 Stud For '03+ XC Forks" under "All Sizes & Colors)*
Non Tribuo Anus Rodentum and off to the next adventure (RIP)
Why not just do it right and run a disc? It's so much easier.
I'd think this is what you'd need, maybe both. I don't know what you already have.
That's the stuff. The only catch on installation is to hold the sleeve so it doesn't rotate. You want the spring locating holes to be the same on each side.

So that knob that is used as grip for installation, would that also be the thing that keeps the sleeve from rotating? I'd just have to make sure that those two knobs end up in the same orientation, right?
