where do I find/buy.......

where can I find/buy a hollow bold for the front brake cable to go down that holds that cap on, that was probably a terible explanation but if you still dont get it I'll get pics of my stripped one.

It's the AheadSet star nut and bolt. You want the bolt to be matched to the star nut in your forks. So, use a hammer and a long screwdriver and pound your old star nut all the way DOWN through your forks, then put this on.

Take a photo and post it then.

If you have normal forks that are not internally threaded then you have a star nut. Otherwise the bolt is worthless - it has to thread into SOMETHING!

Many forks these days are internally threaded - this is a MUCH better way of doing things than the star nut and bolt. It should never strip and never moves. It's just there when you need it.

Odyssey has really pushed fork design and technology over the past couple of year making forks that are lightweight, strong, and very well designed.
