V-brake mounting -or- am I an idiot?
I've been spending my weekend bicycle time repairing/upgrading the components on my trusty 1998 Klein Pulse Race instead of riding. And now I'm sitting at work wondering if I've made a silly error instead of working.
The current issue (which has me ready to throw up my hands and capitulate to the bike shop) is as follows:
1. I've upgraded the fork from the original 1998 Manitou Spyder to a Marzocchi Corsa World Cup SL.
2. My brakes are 1998 Shimano M600 V-brakes (STX-RC or Deore LX level).
3. I remounted a brake on the rear.
4. I went to mount the brake on the fork and found that the fixing bolt is too large to fit into the bosses that are provided with the fork.
Since I'm at work and don't have the bike in front of me - is it possible that I mounted the front brake on the rear? Or has there been a change in the size of fixing bolts for Shimano V-brakes since 1998, meaning I need to purchase new brakes?
