    Hello,
    I am at present mounting my record group set onto my Fondriest Carb Level plus, Monumental frame. The rear brake stud does not appear to be long enough to hit reach the nut. I have tried a longer nut, but that is not the issue, it is that the inside of the rear drop out where the nut goes in seems to get slightly narrower not allowing the two to reach, please does anyonbe know what i am talking about and can help me
    Darren

    I built up a Fondriest frameand had the same issue,if I understand the problem correctly.
    I picked up a longer bolt from the hardware with the same threads,cut it to the correct length and it works fine.

    are you talking about putting a larger bolt onto the brake itself? if so how do you do this because it appears the brake bolt is all connected????

    The problem I encounterd was attaching the rear brake calipers to the frame.The bolt through the pivot point of the calpier was too short.
    I have a Cane Creek brake set and the bolt will unthread so I replaced it.
    I am not for sure about yours but I believe it will so it can be repalced.
    You just need to find one of the same size and threads which should be no problem.
