Bent Stopper Pin
I am new to the forum.
Although I have changed the brakes of my previous bike, it all went wrong this time...
Un-screwing the old V brake link fixing bolt, also brought out the mounting boss ( btw is this common? Since these bosses are not welded to the frame, how can one make sure that they won't come off with the fixing bolt?).
To make the long story short after taking the assembly to a bike shop, they 'fixed' it. Which was not the case as they deflected the boss.
So while trying to fit the new V-Brakes it all went terribly wrong and now one of the stopper pins is deflected (as can be seen in the photo).
Can this be fixed? Is there a spare part just for the stopper pin ring? Or should I consider buying a new V-Brake?
I would be grateful for any help.
