Right, did't have the brake studs, which is why I couldn't do this the other night, but have them now...
CAn't believe this is causing so much hassle, I've fitted V brakes hundreds of times but I've can't work out what to do now.
The brake mounts have some sort of hard plastic/rubber plug in them that I need to get out before I can screw the brake studs in...but buggered if I can get them out!
They seem to have an internal thread that takes the brake bolt, but if I screw it in then I can't pull the plug out.
I can fit a blade between the mount and the plug, but leverage seems to just bend the plastic...I don't want to damage the plug incase I end up leaving a completely inaccesible piece in side the mount...
I've also tried to put a thin allen key in though the back of the mount and push but to no avail.
Help please! I don't want to damage the thread in the mount and I'm impatient and don't want to ring Isla bikes again!
Ta...thanks for reading!
