Front Deraileur washer/spacer missing

Postby adrian_d » Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:52 am

Hi all,

I am putting together my bike at the moment and noticed that the bolt that goes through the brazed on plate and into the front deraileur is too long and bottoms out. I have noticed that in pictures online that there is a washer/spacer that goes inbetween the bolt and the brazed on plate to make sure that the bolt doesn't bottom out.

Is this washer/adaptor available at most LBS?

Thanks ya'll
