i replaced the oem fork with a 700 hybrid fork and added the v brakes. the new fork is longer so the steering is slower but good for a road bike. there is also less transmitted vibs due to increased weight, softer material? now i need to find a solution for the rear brake. i can hack saw, wiz wheel, file and drill a horseshoe shaped bracket, but are there threaded studs available i could drill and tap the bracket for. i am thinking 1/4" aluminum to make the bracket with. anyone know where to get the threaded studs?
