Hello,

Can anyone tell me what the little allen screw is for ?
and what is the complete part called in the picture?
Thanks Phil.

Is it a quiz and is there a prize if I get it right? Smile

It looks like a V-brake arm to me, and the little screw is to adjust the spring tension so you can center the brakes.
