Looks primarily structural - carbon stay into ally dropout- but will my wife die if we use this to mount a mudguard?
Can I use this bolt to mount a mudguard?
shirely my dear, that the rack mount bolt, so yes. There no visible "join".
Isn't that what it's for? Mudguard or rack, I'd have thought.
What can possibly go wrong?!
There does seem to be a joint between 2 sections, the dropout on the side near the camera with a recessat teh back for an eyelet on the end of the seatstay on the side away from the camera. Looks like the a joint that's been painted over. It goes all the way through, to a rather beefy allen nut on the other side.
If it didn't go through to a nut on the other side, I wouldn't be so bothered. If it was completely spare, waiting for something to be bolted on, there wouldn't be a bolt in it already, or anything on the other side?
So no-one else is concerned for my wife's face? Can anyone else see where I'm coming from with it possibly being structural?
longer bolt and some locktite and you will be fine.
