Calfee brake installation issues
I don't why I waited so long but I tried a test installation of the Mavic SSC brakes today.
I was not able to install either the front or the back.
On the front the allen bolt that came with the brakes is too short to reach through fork.
I guess this is typical with carbon forks. I see 22mm and 30mm bolts online.
The 22m looks like it might be too short because it might engage only 4 or 5 threads.
Anybody with an Alpha Q fork know what their bolt size is?
On the rear the hole in the brake bridge has a sudden change in diameter right on the end facing the rear of the bike. The brake will not fit through, not even close. I thought maybe it could be paint build up, but it seems too much for that.
Of course I will be contacting Calfee on Monday.
Here are some pics:
