    Attaching Caliper Brakes to Frame?

    Can someone tell me what the threaded pieces (that the bolt on the brake would screw into) are called? Also, is it a standard part I could get at any LBS? I'm missing a set for my brakes, and was wondering that's the easiest way to go about getting a replacement?

    Do they differ based on the frame size?


    Thanks in Advance!

    It's called a nut. The come in varying lengths. Any LBS should have a good selection of them.

    Technically it's a nut as mentioned. However to better describe it when you go to the LBS I'd call it "...one of those sleeve nuts that goes onto the mounting stud for a caliper brake" and then tell them how long you need it since they come in a couple of different lengths. Then they'll know that you need the one that fits into the fork or brake bridge rather than an external regular nut.
    Model airplanes are cool too!.....
