Hello all, just ventured over from the road section to pick you guys brains on a v brake mount problem I've got.
Basically I removed the old V brakes from my beater bike (old rusty ridgeback tourer) and found that the brass bushes from the caliper pivot are left on the canti/V stud/mounts. Ok, I expected it would just slide off but it is stuck!!! the strange thing is that they are loose enough to move forward 2mm and will spin freely around the mount but just won't pull off from the front
it's the same on both sides. It had cheapy Tektro Vs on there which must be as old as the bike (approx 10yrs), the springs are knackered so took them off to fit some equally cheap halfords replacements. The rear end was no problem, old removed and new fitted and working fine... but the front is another story!
Now I'm stuck with no front brakes on my work bike and I need to ride to work again on monday! Any help would be much appreciated.
