|Brake bolt for carbon fork?||OffTheBack|
Aug 10, 2002 3:55 PM
|I'm trying to mount a new Chorus brake caliper onto an Icon Air Rail carbon fork. The nut will only reach the bolt if I don't install a star washer, and even then it feels like I only get one or two turns of the threads before it is tight.
No, I did not mistakenly install the rear brake on the front.
Do I need an extra-long nut or something? Is this a common issue wth CF forks?
Thanks for your ideas.

|If it's a new fork, look real carefully at all of the packing material that came in the box. Chances are the long hex nut that you need is in there.
If it's a used fork or if you've already thrown away the box, your local bike shop can order the appropriate nut for you.
|Used fork. LBS ordered nut for me. Thanks guys! (nm)||OffTheBack|
