hi all,

 

i have a problem,but not just any problem,a brake problem!

here is what is wrong :

my eclat unit bolts seem to be to fat to fit into the mounts of my pantera 2007,i think its a 2011 unit ,

does anybody know why it might not be fitting,i really like the eclat brake i have it in teal and the colours is sweet :) 

if it helps,i bought in in europe second hand (2 cables,caliper,lever,all eclat and some stickers for £18 ).

 

my idea was to either put a new bolt into the unit,mod it in some way  ?

or sell it and hope a fly bikes will fit cos its the same brand as my pantera :)

 

can provide pics if wanted :)

What I understand is that your breaks fit your new frame, but the bolts don't go into the brake mounts. If so, then yeah new bolts. Whats the break cable got to do with a bolt being to big or not, if your not empty handed. Try bluesix (google) got some nice ti bolts

lol,some undetected sarcasm went into the world.sorry. i know brake cable has nothing to do with bolts .

so i got new brakes for my old 2007 fly frame,and the eclat bolts are to fat and dont go into the mounts :)

also im in the uk and i bought the eclat for 18 i dont fancy paying another 2 times that for some nice ti bolts,any cheap piece of shit will do,my daddy could probs make those bolts for cheaper(does cnc) but its too much effort .. anyone know any cheap bolts.

i found this :http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Titanium-BMX-UPGRADE-KIT-brake-caliper-bolts-pair-/260763803839?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item3cb6bbe0bf#ht_982wt_1154

Okay, so you know that you need to buy new bolts. You know what you have to do, you researched it yourself, and your dad can make you a bolt. So what do you want us to do?

I know it's this stupid facebook thing and I keep having to scroll to the top of the page to accept it and sometimes I forget. Hmm, how about measure it? To find what size something is I usually measure it, does help abit.

Btw you have to measure the diameter if your wondering -_-

You just need a new M6 bolt. Don't both with stripping and rethreading bullshit. Hardware stores will have an abundance of them.

I highly doubt you have M8 bolts, that doesn't make any sense for brakes. Unless whoever sold you those brakes just thought "Welllll these bolts should work!"

The solution is literally under a dollar in most hardware stores. 2 M6 bolts (make sure their length isn't too long for the frame).

How so?

If they're stuck together, take a spanner or adjustable and grab the spring cap with it and keep it static while you take out the bolt.

Just go to the hardware store. Unless you're in the middle of cowfields bum**** nowhere, any hardware store that carries bolts and nuts and fittings will have them.

As far as it being stuck. Sounds like it's stripped. In which case you're kinda ****ed, I don't know if the Pantera has removable brake mounts? Sounds like you stripped them out.

for the first line : yes 8000 residents no real sk8 park or any places to ride apart from mtb trails 5 miles away :) (local hit !)

and now about the brakes ,nope i dont buy broken shit,and i definately dont brake and strip the parts myself,im gentle and my bikes live indoors. what has happened is the bolt is in the hexagonal thing connected to the spring,it isnt on the bike yet ,and i cant get it out to change it for a smaller bolt,i thought it was 1 pc but then i saw this :http://img.tredz.co.uk/prodimg/42425_1_Zoom.jpg

on there is are springs,bolts and hex things,i cant get the bolt out of the hex,i didnt try it for long but i got the impression it just turned inside the hex thing without actually going up.eusa_think.gif

but thanks for your help,i try to rep as much as i can its really appreciated .

Sounds like they might be cold welded together (if I'm using that term correctly, I might not be). But basically they sound like they're stuck together if they're 2 pieces.

You have 2 options. Smash it out of there or get a new brake hardware kit. They're usually not too expensive. Just going to be a bitch since they're specific to your brakes.
