INSTALLING DURA-ACE BRAKE ON OUZO PRO FORK
April 8, 2005
Back to questions
I am trying to install Dura-Ace
7700 brakes on a 2002 Ouzo Pro fork. It seems that the fork
is too deepI can't attach the brake because the bolt
on the brake will not reach the deal that it screws into.
Can you help?
Presumably you dont wanna
take this stuff to a bike shop for installation cuz you
bought the parts yourself and you wanna save money.
While I cant figure out the
assembly without seeing the parts, I do have a suggestion:
Call a bike mechanic youve dealt with and ask them
if you could pay them, as an independent consultant, to
look at it for you. Even if you pay them $20 for their advice
youd still probably come out ahead.
But lemme put in a plug for independent
bike dealers (IBDs): We need them, and many of them survive
on repairs and installations. Obviously if you have bike-assembly
expertise you should do yourself whatever you can. But until
you get to that expert level you might think about paying
your IBD dues.
