V-Brake posts?
#1
I'm trying to get an old Cannondale M500 mtb back rolling again. I'm missing the post that screws into the fork on each side and the back seat stay post too, so I can install some v-brakes. I'm not sure what the true name for these post are or where to find them. Anybody know... ??
See pics...
Thanks

it is nice to know the thread size and pitch, common are m8, m10 sized. they are called cantilever bosses, v-brake bosses. etc...
Measure the inside of the hole in MM and guess from there. they are obtainable about anywhere, just google it once you think you know the size you have.
