I picked up an Axium Journey from craigslist about a week ago and was mounting it to a bike I got recently. The hex bolts it comes with fit the eyelets fine, but don't seem to go into the mounting holes on the rack itself, at least for the mounts near the hub (the seatstay mounts seem fine.) It is puzzling because I am 80% certain he used the rack before, so maybe he was using a smaller bolt of his own.
So what I wonder is if I should just drill a 6mm hole through the 5mm one, tap the hole (pending on whether or not my dad has a metric tap and die set) or just forcing it through (I'm thinking this is the Option I least want to deal with). If I try to screw it in in just bores out the Aluminium (I have probably taken out about .5mm before I decided it wasn't going in.
