Recessed brake pivot nut too short

Postby open roader » Tue Jan 09, 2024 10:17 pm

Completing the finishing touches to another bike build and have a fork with very deep blade profile requiring an ultra long brake pivot nut to reach through the fork crown and also allow for an extra 4mm steel light bracket I wish to fit behind the caliper.

I have a 32mm nut fitted at present but it's only 3.5 threads onto the bolt.

I need a 40mm nut - anyone got one they can sell me? I can't find one genuinely located in AU and would rather not wait for AliEx postage time if possible.

No worries - many thanks for taking the time to look.

I'll head over to AliEx..........

I got one from Bicycle Recycle in Moorabbin years ago, don't know if they are still there.

Problem solved.

I found someone selling a 35mm nut - it gave me an extra 2 3/4 turns of thread - I think that will cover it.

Many thanks all.
