Does anyone know the pitch of the v brake bosses on these forks. Having real problems trying to locate. I know they are M8 but not sure on pitch.
Ebay have titanium ones from China but cannot locate steel.
Thanks in advance
Chris

The size you need is 8mm x 1.25. They do come up for sale fairly often.

Just watch out for the thread length (although you can file down steel ones) and any exaggerated shoulder / collar.

The Ti ones from China are fine - I have a couple of pairs of SIDs with them fitted.
